A team of two people and a two-year-old pug Remy went to conquer the seas. More precisely, they thought so. For two days everything went according to plan, Tanner and Nikki enjoyed the trip until the yacht ran into some kind of obstacle. The impact was so strong that Nikki almost flew off the deck. When the water began to flow into the cabin, the team called the Sea Tow service.

According to novice sailors, the cause of the shipwreck was inaccuracies in navigation data dated 2016-2017.

Neither Tanner nor Nikki had any yacht management experience. But this did not prevent them from buying a 49-year-old vessel in April 2017. The couple paid five thousand dollars for the yacht and spent another five to get it in proper shape. Now Nikki and Tanner have $90 in their pocket. They do not know what to do next, but they are sure that this is not their last adventure at sea.
