    Thank you Antoine and Jean-Philippe for your answers to my questions.  I do have one more on the subject.  There was an idea that the survivors may have cobbled together an "emergency sailboat" and attempted to leave Vanikoro.  Has a definitive verdict been reached on that theory?

    You probably know that the wreckage sites of both La Boussole and L'Astrolabe have most recently (a couple of years back) been identified beyond any doubt from a number of items found on the Vanikoro sites, with more to become soon public. From the various detailed accounts I could lately read - mainly from the French Naval Academy Alumni review - I would personnally feel that these wreckage sites now definitely belong to the "100(.0000)% identified" wreckage sites category, than still to the "presumed" wreckage sites category as was indicated here earlier.
