Not long after we received the boatwatch, we were alerted the captain arrived safely.

Quote from the Facebook page for Mishiwa
I've just spoken with David to get more information. About a week into the trip Mishiwa developed steering problems and then combined with storms from the 4th October meant that Mishiwa travelled a lot slower and had some difficulty staying on course. We're so relieved that Mishiwa was able to make it to Labuan safely.

Thank you again to everyone for your support, prayers and kind words. I think we'll all sleep well tonight!
The P/C REEL N DEAL was just confirmed to have arrived safely in Cabo San Lucas.  Thank you for your assistance.
