Patanela - Message in a Bottle - From the Boaters TV - Sailboat sinking mystery

This is a video clip from the Boaters TV about a sailing vessel that sank many years ago. She was the Patanela. If you have any information about this I am sure the families and friends would appreciate your help. Dwayne

I lived on the Patanela for a time, I am described in fact in the book "Patanela is missing" , I believe as I have not read the book and so am relying on hearsay an alcoholic and worse. My name is Linda Hornby. What I find amazing about all reports is that they say that the Patanela had 4 watertight bulkheads, when it was common knowledge that the bulkhead to the forecastle would not seal due to distortion from a previous mishap.
