Fourteen days later the ship is found by the "Barkentine Dia Gratia" with sails set, but not a sign of life. Food is still warm in the galley, there is no evidence of a mutiny or struggle, the cargo is intact and one longboat is still lashed to the deck. A Maritime Court advances several theories, but none that stand up when examined closely. Written by Les Adams See less
