yeah, Thats really cool that the sinking of the ship was actually recorded. I was just looking up some of the sites posted on this thread and theres alot of pictures of this ship as it was sinking as well as where it now lies at the bottom of the sea. So then it was obviously discovered. Ive been looking up mores info on the ship, well C ya

Definitely. Very dramatic. At the end they show a news report with an army processional in Pretoria, the capital, which is unfortunately, in Afrikaans. Also, they interview the passengers (in English)... Interesting to see the on-land footage too...

Very dramatic footage... I am getting it converted overnight into a DVD.

If anyone has questions feel free to ask.

Hello and thanks for granting me membership to your website. I was a passenger on the Oceanos 13 years ago when it sank off Coffee Bay. Quite an experience and one not to be repeated by choice.Your website is very interesting and one that I will monitor regularly.

Always nice to hear from somebody who was there for the events in question. I've never had any ship sink from beneath me, but I've been involved in a major fire at sea that could have resulted in the total destruction of the vessel had it reached the ammunition magazines. Fortunately, the fire parties did a wonderful job of keeping it confined to the main machinary room where it all started.

It's not something I'd care to repeat either.

I'm looking for a video or dvd's with the interview with the captain of Oceanos where he was telling the reason why he left the ship before all the passengers. Is anyone out there who can guide me where to find such dvd's but I have seen that on several TV channels.
