It seems that it is now about 150m below the surface of the Red Sea. I am happy to report that the crew are fine. It seems that two other boats lost engines on a reef.
Yeah these guys where in front of us when we sow them flipping over, we thought! Afther seconds it went out to be the Tube that ript of the boat. However there was one guy missing in the boat, i show him floating in the water, dove into it and helped him out. The guys doing well, but the boat sunk, the pulled it into swallow water. No news afther that.
