Re: 6 Americans, 1 Brit vanish at sea
There are all kinds of things to hit in the Tasman - it can be a pretty treacherous place to sail..
Sunfish, whales, shipping containers.. there's a range of things to choose from out there that the folks on board, no matter how experienced, would have absolutely no control over.
A case of wrong place, wrong time.
