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.

I am a bit concerned I may have been responsible for their downfall. Maybe I have harped on too much about keeping your mobile phone dry.....

So no freezer bags or pele cases if you are up to no good!!!


"That phone was to prove crucial to the State's case. It was later discovered by customs officers in a watertight Pele box found on board the gang's Rib as it lay semi-submerged amid the 62 bales of cocaine floating in choppy seas in Dunlough Bay.The phone enabled gardaí to establish a pattern of contacts with phone numbers in the UK.
A satellite phone, which was also recovered in the Pele box, showed a series of calls to a phone in Spain and another satellite phone as it travelled across the Atlantic on the Lucky Day ."
