    The official search has been abandoned; although the families are
    asking vessels in area to continue looking (from the ABC radio news
    this morning).
    
    From a photo I've seen over the weekend, the cat had a number of
    fenders out on the port side, despite being outside the Great Barrier
    Reef � thus out in the open ocean. The sailors' families say the
    sailors were all experienced. Theories are being aired of piracy but
    the vessel wasn't pillaged � eg; equipment such as laptop computers
    were left running on the table in plain view. The headsail was
    shredded, although that is consistent with being left to flog, maybe
    over a few days, in 20 knot winds.
    
    I don't have any solution to offer. It remains a mystery. I thought it
    was interesting that the authorities hoped to retrace the boat's
    movements since leaving port through analysis of the GPS, which was
    also found running.
