Re: Schooner Nina - MERGED 3 THREADS

TRying to upload maps on the search patterns trying to use photobucket but it tells me this . . .
"Please do not use remote images, upload them instead."
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Schooner Nina - MERGED 3 THREADS

I am not sure if it helps but you can see the cat sitting on the liferaft canister in the picture here. They might be able to figure out the type from the photo. Some of the service companies also might have a record of servicing it. If it wasn't serviced in NZ it might have been serviced in Florida before departure or major stops along the way.

Re: Schooner Nina - MERGED 3 THREADS

From the picture, it looks to me like it might be this one....note it looks like there might be a hydrostatic release.

REVERE | reveresurvival.com | Manufacturer of Survival Equipment Since 1936#

They are sold in Florida which makes sense that it was bought before they left. I would call Revere and see if they have a record of it. Here is a list of the service stations. Good luck.

It strikes me that assuming Nina is no more how come none of the electronics were activated to SOS ? A knockdown or a huge rogue wave would not of instantly killed everyone on board, neither was there any message to support she was in kind of distress, so, the only scenario that I can come up with that she was run down by a much large vessel...or, less likely , she was far off course and stuck rock....Maybe the authorities should check to see if any vessel in the area at the time has reported hitting something?

Re: Schooner Nina - MERGED 3 THREADS

I just joined this forum to mention the hydrostatic release too.. I am guessing this is a pretty old picture, but if they still have that set up there is a good chance that liferaft is afloat somewhere.

Re: Schooner Nina - MERGED 3 THREADS

It is hard to say if there is a hydrostatic release or not....it could be just a lashing or quick release. Maybe another photo taken from a different angle would show but I can't find anything else online....

I'm being realistic. A raft, not related of course, was spotted by cruise ship that totally ignored it. Not kosher IMHO

It's exactly the right colour.

Thank you it's night here but forwarded your info to Laz and RCC. I can call them in morning. I remember David saying how much a raft cost . A bit of time ago.. Like $5000? Seems right?? Again, the sailor community is going to get Nina home. God Speed! Cherie

The cat on the liferaft was mine and called Chippy

The picture is from May 7, 2009, during their time in Shelter Bay Marina in Colon, Panama.

Yes, there was a hydrostatic release on the liferaft.
