Sounds dramatic.

2 adults, 4 kids, full mayday at 4:50 am, at the Mokohinau's.

CG said the rescue was aided by the boat doing everything right, including setting off a locator beacon. No mention of the use of foil sheets though?

From the photos it's definitely sunk. Pure speculation, but you'd have to guess they've hit something, either a nav error and they've hit the mokes, or maybe ufo strike?


These things happen I guess, good to see they were on to it enough to make sure it ended with everyone on board safe and sound.
