Very exciting: we've spotted a rock formation similar to one described by the only survivor of the Melissa wreck in 1860. Headed there on the Savannah now.

@HollyPotonik hope we get there before it's totally dark. even the captain's getting excited. I think the prof might blow a gasket.

@ArdenMelby She's right to be excited. This would be a phenomenal find, and she'd be sure to be recognised for it.

There’s a fire in the engine room. get to the front of the boat and stay there, it's spreading upwards to the bridge

@ProfCCole What was that explosion? Is someone hurt?

Carol Cole
@ProfCCole

@HollyPotonik The fire spread so quickly. I said to stay clear but they wouldn't listen, I don't understand

The next day

With the ship damaged, I’ll have to put that scuba diving holiday to good use and help Sam see if the explosion damage reached the outer hull.

@ArdenMelby

it's pretty murky down here - I think maybe cause of the rough weather before? can't see the bottom

We are so sorry to have lost Holly. With the water so rough, we have been unable to return to the Savannah.

Carol Cole
@ProfCCole

Arden, Sam and myself are on the two life rafts we managed to launch. We have strapped them together, only having one set of paddles.

Then
Carol Cole
@ProfCCole

In order to precent the rafts from being damaged, we have had to detach from the Savannah and drift into open water.

Carol Cole
@ProfCCole

We hope to be found soon.
