    My cousin was on that boat! This took place last Saturday 7th Oct as they make their way back to Penjuru. On their way back, heavy down pourfall on them. Boatman has poor visibility despite following the same route and might misjudge low tide. The boat mount on some coral. No one were injured and all rescued by PCG.

    ​I was out on 7th Oct didn’t see it but on Sunday someone also posted this photo plus Anglers bring rescued by PT21 (Angler ray) , so are you sure it is on 7th and not 8th ?

    Just to share an experience that happened 4-5yrs ago. I joined a fishing charter trip departing from Penjuru with 4-5 other anglers, not knowing the reputation of the boat/boatman.

    After the days' fishing, when we were returning back to the jetty, a very heavy thunderstorm started. Visibility was so bad that we could not see the mainland. The boat captain continued to motor on in the "general direction". 

    I was pretty freaked out because I know we would be crossing some shipping lanes and low reefs on the way back. Visibility was like 20m in the rain! I quickly opened my Navionics map to pinpoint where we were going. In the heavy rain and poor visibility, the boat captain was actually going in circles! He then stopped the engine but we were still drifting. Luckily, the rain subsided to improve the visibility and we continue our way back to the jetty.

    Now, I'm wary of whose boat I'm taking and whether the boat has GPS on board. Scary trip!
