You could always use reality. Truth is always stranger than fiction.
One a few years ago - if I remember the details correctly.
Off the Qld coast (North Eastern Australia) 3 men
in the 50's bought their dream boat and were sailing it to Perth.
The boat was found floating at sea, calm water
, no storms nor bad weather
, noone on board, no sign of a struggle, the table set for a meal and the fenders over the side.
To my knowledge noone has ever found out what happened.
Then there is the horrible accident
now about 2 years ago.
At Flinders Islet, just south of Sydney
. 3 people died.
If you google
Andrew Short Australia
you may find information about it. He was the owner skipper
was at night and the enquiry found that GPS
was out for few hours that night. Yes GPS
does occasionally go out of whack. Not sure if by acccident or by design. The conspiracy theory is the US military control it and sometimes make it 'wrong'. And they hit the Islet. Hard.
was eventually pulled from the water
, dead, still holding the wheel
and he went overboard
Very experienced skipper and crew.
