Re: 6 Americans, 1 Brit vanish at sea

Good thinking! Yes, archival footage has been checked. Nothing has been found which tracks this boat. Unless specifically tasked, the satellites don't shoot photos.

Re: 6 Americans, 1 Brit vanish at sea

Thanks Dfok,

A lot of people don't know, the Nina 7, as some of us call them, are not millionaire sailors, but normal folk like you and me. Some of them are from humble means. Even the boat's...

Re: 6 Americans, 1 Brit vanish at sea

Thanks, all for posting and commenting. Every one knows, including the families, that the sailors on the Nina are fighting long odds. However, those discussions do little to assist in the search...

Re: 6 Americans, 1 Brit vanish at sea

We are fighting against basic ignorance about longevity at sea. John Glennie survived on the East side of New Zealand with three crew mates for 119 days. He says he would have made it a lot longer....

Re: 6 Americans, 1 Brit vanish at sea

We really appreciate the support of all sailors. It is quite possible the sailors are alive on an upright Nina. Part of their longevity may be due in part to the stores on the Nina. However, John...

Re: Experienced Crew needed from Tahiti to Fiji

There is no reason to be flaming people. Each party must make up his own mind what value is being offered and whether they should contribute.
