Blue Dragon Komodo sunk?

Post Number:#1  Postby Quero » Thu Sep 16, 2010 3:28 pm

I heard that the LOB Blue Dragon went down in Komodo and had Malaysians and Singaporeans aboard. Is there any local news about this? First-hand accounts?

Update: Apparently the boat that went down was Blue Dragon 2, which is primarily a snorkel liveaboard.

hope everybody is ok.

i was in Similan when one of the LOBs' ran aground at night. luckily nobody got injured. the other boats picked up the divers,  we were at donald duck bay so it was close to shore. the next night all of us could not sleep...
alamak, the tank goes at the back??

Decimal, what boat was that in the Similans?

For the Blue Dragon LOB, the most recent reports indicate that the passengers were diving. Two injuries--one DM and the cook.
I guess everybody is okay and at Denpasar trying to get home.
