John is my uncle-in-law, and, while I certainly do not share his views on religion, and find no reason to ascribe anything to any god or gods, I certainly completely accept the story of being capsized for 119 days. I remember as a teenager being the one who took the phone call which was the police letting us, his relatives in Blenheim, know that he was thought to be lost at sea. Nearly 4 months later, we were elated to hear of the incredible survival. I heard extra detail of the tense relationships and the day to day incidents which has never been publicised, and only adds depth to the story, and its veracity. Actually, the simple size of the barnacles and growth on parts of the wreckage of the boat which should have been well-above the waterline and up in the air, should put paid to any detractors. John always had some 'odd' views on the nature of things, and does to this day. This certainly comes out in the movies that I have seen. But, each to their own. I still have photos taken of the Rose-Noelle when it was at berth in Picton in 1988. Magnificent, even then.
