  • My friend told me that also, but can't confirm, searching the net, didn't find any news about this.  Interestingly, I visited their website, there is no booking after the 6 to 10 Nov trip.

  • Also heard this over the weekend. Maybe the operator can provide more info, or reject this as rumours?

    If it's true, this is very very sad indeed.

  • Heard about it over the weekend. Boat got grounded and capsized but everyone is safe. I think best to wait for confirmation from the owner.

    If she was moved, perhaps more like salvaged to clear the waterways in accordance to law.  I doubt that wooden boat is worth repairing.
    So they call it a 'FACT' coz someone made some statements on a 'FACT SHEET'? hummm...
