In 2007, Gemma Sheridan and 2 friends set out on a voyage that was to take them from their home town of Liverpool, across the Atlantic to the Panama Canal and then onwards to the beautiful island of Hawaii.

There was a huge storm that took out the boats electronics and washed her 2 friends overboard and seriously damaged her boat.

Corin Nemec — star of the ’90s sitcom “Parker Lewis Can’t Lose” was traveling in a boat when it crashed into a semi-submerge barge wow in Belize. The actor was rushed into emergency surgery treated for a shattered leg and significant blood loss.
Nemec says he was on board a Coast Guard vessel in Belize on Saturday morning — on his way to shoot a scene for a movie — when the boat crashed into a semi-submerged barge.
Nemec claims he suffered major injuries in the wreck — and was transported to a nearby hospital for emergency surgery.
The actor — who was working on the SyFy movie “Poseidon Rex” — told a local news reporter, “We hit the sinking barge, and that is what filled the boat to one side immediately with an enormous amount of force, and that threw me into the side of the boat where I shattered my femur in 3 places.”
41-year-old Nemec says the break was so bad, he lost over half the blood in his body — and he required multiple blood transfusions to save his life.
“Everybody onboard that boat, including the gentlemen working for the Coast Guard, everyone is lucky to be alive,” Nemec said. tmz
Get well soon Parker.
“We heard a loud scraping noise which jolted us, water started flowing in, the lights went out…I felt like I was on the Titanic.”The 4,200-passenger vacation cruise ship “Costa Concordia” struck a rock in shallow water off of Italy’s western coast, near the Italian island of Giglio on Friday night.
When the ‘over max capacity’ ship scraped against a rock near the coast, it caused the bottom of the ship to tear open like the Titanic did!
Wait til’ Britney Spears hears about this when she gets off of the boat in Hawaii!
Lindsay Lohan Vanity Fair
Lindsay Lohan did an interview, an entire photoshoot and starred in a mini-movie for Vanity Fair magazine, and it all took place on Judy Garland’s old vintage yacht! The whole spread was done before Lindsay went to jail and rehab, and the pictures, video and interview have all been just released. Lindsay told Vanity Fair that she looked up to Britney when she was younger, and she shouldn’t have because she wouldn’t “be where she is today”! Lindsay is saying that Britney’s influence took her on the wrong life path and into the sea of drugs and debauchery. Here is an excerpt from Lindsay’s interview talking about Britney:
Lohan blames her troubles, in part, on hanging out with the wrong crowd, Sales reports. “So many people around me would say they cared for the wrong reasons. A lot of people were pulling from me, taking from me and not giving. I had a lot of people that were there for me for, you know, the party.” And when she first moved to L.A., Lohan says, “it was very go-go-go and I had a lot of responsibility; and I think just the second I didn’t have [structure] anymore—I was 18, 19—with a ton of money and no one really here to tell me that I couldn’t do certain things … And I see where that’s gotten me now, and I don’t like it.” She says tabloids were her main source of news, and calls that “really scary and sad… I would look up to those girls… the Britneys and whatever, and I would be like, I want to be like that.”
Two Panamanian cargo ships, the “MSC Chitra” and “MV Khalijia-111”, collided on Saturday off of Mumbai’s coast causing an oil spill from one of the vessels. The ship Chitra has almost sunken completely, and the cargo has almost been completely dumped into the Sea.
According to officials, Chitra was carrying about 1,200 containers which had over 266 tonnes of fuel.
