    Dear Behan,
    Thank you for the kind words and the gracious invitation and sorry for late reply
    We are now back and waiting for our flight back.

    We are still eager on exchange of photos - potentially via my direct address user drberndschmidt provider
    I can also add some additional information.

    From initial diver inspection, we have info that the escape hatch window was missing - not broken. Original hatch, no replacement. Boat from 2008.

    We also learned how the boat sank during salvage. A harbor tug from Port Victoria tried to tow it in. They righted the cat and attached the towline to the alu traverse between the two front bows, and went full steam towing at 6 knots. The front traverse broke, thus compromising the last air holding compartments in the front and losing the boat. A truly genius feat of seamanship.

    We have recovered well and spend a good two week vacation on a Lagoon 380 that the charterer provided as replacement.

    Best regards

    Bernd Schmidt
