May God bless their souls and bring peace to the guys who survived.

Prayers offered up to them and their families from West of Ireland

Amen. But now there's the old discussion on front-pages here in Norway: should she be raised (at an enormous expense) so as letting the families bury their dead. We had the same heated discussion with the "Alexander Kielland" and of course the "Estonia". There's quite a number of sailors buried out there, in my opinion they're buried well enough for any religion. Let them stay. Or what do sailors here think? Regards, stein

what was the young boy doing with them? was it work experience or somthing? absalute tragity. b4 she was on the surface for that length of time you would have expected air pockets to be holding her up and could it have been possible that the men could have been in them?

That is what was worrying me. I hope not, because that would be horrendous - I would hate to think what happened to them if they were still alive when she sank.

Very sad indeed. Tragic loss of life. Hopefully the industry learns from this accident.

It doesn't bear thinking about and I'd rather not think about it either.
