The blog Pendanablog.com was created by a cruising family from Australia to tell of their adventures aboard their much-loved Nordhavn 62 named Pendana.

Recently, the family played a role in an incident 650 nautical miles off the coast of Australia where a yacht named Stormvogel came very close to sinking. 

“The ingenious idea of using concrete/cement to fill the area that was leaking and, I might add, which ultimately saved Stormvogel from a watery grave was in a word, remarkable, reads the blog, which includes photos taken by the family.

The photos provided in the article give a real sense of what the crews of two other boats that Stormvogel were travelling with encountered.
