    Default R/V Seaprobe sinking???

    Heard that she sunk on the way to Mobile. Had a friend on there. I have heard every one is ok but I would like to hear any kind of news. Anyone know or hear anything?

    The mate on board came over yesterday and told me the story. Quite a scary ordeal. Very very happy everyone made it out of there alive.

    Can you share any of the details, or was it told in confidentiality?

    That was a miserable 40 year old POS ex supply boat. I bet some big seawater line was all rotted out and blew up flooding the engineroom and if the door at the forward bulkhead wasn't closed the entire hull then probably flooded.




    too old even for Nigeria I guess
