I'm sure we have all wondered at one time or another what would happen if the motor broke down - well here's the answer. Unbelievable.

I read the story in the paper. That is so cool that those boys made it. I guess it was just in time because they started drinking sea water for lack of rain. Great news!!

Incredible story of survival. I'm sure most adults would never have made it.
