Fishy tale
The one that got away
Biter bit as pulling in a half ton Atlantic blue marlin sank a fishing boat off the Punta Rasca.

The Sailfisher, a specialist in sport fishing, carrying its Captain, one member of crew and two Russian clients, managed to reel in the enormous fish, but to get it on board, they opened the back hatch, a disastrous decision, given the high seas at the time.  They sank within minutes.

Luckily the ship Dotsy Too was in the area and immediately came to the aid of the Sailfisher crew and passengers and brought them safely into harbour at Puerto Colón.  No doubt to exchange many a fishy tale with their friends and family about the one that got away.
