Nothing like a good night's sleep before getting rescued!

It would be nice to get some more information about what really happened on board.

That was pretty strange.
"Looks like we're taking on water!!"
"Yep, looks like it. It's past my bedtime so I'll check it tomorrow. Sleep tight!"

Sounds like what happened was the sailors were clueless.

Thought I already told you what happened, What do you reckon would happen when you pay for 1800 liters of fuel for a boat with a capacity of 1000 litres, just another stupid new boat owner, with no experience with the vessel he intends driving around the top of Australia to the west coast

Re: 2 yachts sink in QLD

1800 liters times 1.9 lbs per liter equals 3420 lbs. Thats an awful lot of weight for a cat especially when you factor all the other stuff. Moral of the story is not to overload your boat and don't go to sleep with the water running. Dang. BOB
