The search for the Simshar has still not gave out any positive results. Let us all hope that they are still alive and not down at the bottom as it would be a tragedy for all maltese fishermen. some say that the boat was captured by libian authorities but on the other hand no info has been sent to malta. Let us all pray for them and their families so that they will  be found.

Roughly the article says that american, italian and maltese forces are searching for them...but so far everything turned negative.  Yesterday they found a partly submerged cabin of a boat but it turned out that it wasn't of SHIMSHAR....Out at sea everything is possible, what happened only God knows....

Latest news report says that a body recovered at sea some 60nm SW of Malta appears to be that of Noel Carabott Sad

His wife has been called in to help identify the body due to tatoo's and other distinguishing marks that were found on the corpse. Unfortunately things are not looking positive for the crew of the Simshar, let's hope that things still turn out positively.

Guy, we will definetely hear more news within the coming days but surely this is a very real sad news to all maltese people especially for the victims families and all the fishermen who goes fishing out there on the sea.

Right now I really feel sad for those men and that 11 year old boy and all together we should pray for their souls and most of all for therir families.

May God help all their families and the armed forces to recover all victims back.

May God Grant them eternal rest if it is the case that they have drowned. It is a surely shockking story and this shuold raise mor awareness to us fisherman. As to say for myself i practice the same fishing techniques as they used to fish with and also we go to the same places. This surely should mean that now i will never sleep anymore whilst out there as this would be passing through my head.

Let us hope that the bodies are recovered and are brought back here to their home so as one can pay his last respects. 2 bodies already found which means that they should find more. My hopes of finding any survivors now is close to 0% Sad
Dear god take care of their families in this greif moment as it is very sad.

Yes that is right Simon was just found alive. Lets hope his son is found alive aswell and maybe the other deckhand aswell. Simon gave them information that there was an explosion. Hopes are up now. This breaking news made me shed tears of happiness
