Re: Details on this 'lost at sea' story?

The yard owner was telling me of a cruising couple on a budget who bought a low priced 30ft wooden ketch. They had it surveyed and the surveyor had told the couple not to buy the boat(one of the details was that the chain plates were moving). With the all too familiar enthusiasm, they went for it anyway.
ho hum.

Fortunately theres very few of these types of sinkings. 2007 to 2013 is pretty good with so few... but, obviously, they can happen.
