BlueSun, I think it's not local time but where TomNod is. Spoke with several people and say they use pages not lat/long for their imagery. Probably easier to catalog for referencing I guess!. You can click on the link for Nina and TomNod and perhaps get more info there.

Re: Schooner Nina - MERGED 3 THREADS

The book "Survival at Sea" describes 65 or so days in a liferaft.

May they be found safe and sound.

If relying on stuff in the raft... 1 to 3 weeks... maybe.
If planning ahead for possible disaster and have spare water jugs and basic rations like energy bars etc at hand with the grab bag it could be up to 3 to 4 mths.... also depends on the size of raft...
I know it says 4-6-8 man but believe me... sealed up against weather the combination of seasickness and CO2 build up will wear folk down fast... if they had to abandon to a raft I feel any find will be a recovery of 2 or 3... the others would have been shoved over the side as they expired..
Harsh but true I'm sorry to say... there have been some remarkable survivals but how they did it is not a path I wish to explain.

Re: Schooner Nina - MERGED 3 THREADS

Can SAR NZ/AUS be requested to conduct search of this area again?

Perhaps it is a good idea to push some?

Re: Schooner Nina - MERGED 3 THREADS

Have you talked to NZ SAR already? What is their stand?

They have the best equipment to fly over the largest area possible.

Fingers crossed.

Just picked up September issue of Soundings. Cover story was of Nina, titled "Vanished."

Here's hoping you make 'em wrong.

God's luck to you all!

Re: Schooner Nina - MERGED 3 THREADS

Will make for a hell of a movie if these blokes turn up.

Certainly don't feel any blame can be rightfully placed on NZ rescue services. Families emotions are no doubt still running high, but there is a limit to what can be expected.

I'm ambit curious where exactly this image came from. I read a "crowd sourcing" site. Not totally sure what that is but sound something like a Wiki.

Anyhow, standing by; Again
