Re: Capsize of Samos

I think you mean this;

Two migrants dead and 30 missing after boats capsize off Greece | World news | theguardian.com

Not while trying to enter Samos but off the coast, at least is what they say on the article.

It seems the same old sad and tragic story with African migrants trying to enter illegally in Europe. Accidents like these ones with dozens of dead happen frequently. That's an horror story

You know there is quite a bit of truth to that. People like this that show initiative, more than a little bravery and are willing to risk it all, usually make good citizens.

Re: Capsize of Samos

What kind of rig would you call that? Do you think it's got lifting foils? I wonder what kind of anchor he has!?

Re: Capsize of Samos

Seriously though that is ballsy! It takes a certain kind of mind, part crazy/desperate to come up with some of the stuff you see imigrants trying. That's some pretty clever use of materials.
