spartacus Thought RIBS were virtually unsinkable? I can imagine she was shipping water in a F5 with no power, and loaded to the gunwales with the best part of 1.5t of cocaine. Wouldn't she have capsized first, but remained afloat, and then scuttled?
Can imagine beach-combing has increased in the immediate area!!!
A couple of high profile deaths this year has been linked to wet/damp cocaine usage where its too damp to snort so they eat a ball of it and collapse. Down our way there is plenty of "sea hash " to be got where the fishermen trawl up bales of the stuff from the sea bed. It's meant to be fairly mankey, I dont touch either myself.
