Rogue waves, capsizing vessels, floating “Sea”crets, and a little dog named Bitti?! What a maritime tale of stress and survival, and one can only hope the beloved parties eventually made it to shore. Meet Tom and Meg Trumbo, a vibrant fifty-something couple. Next on Tom Trumbo’s bucket list is a four hundred fifty mile trip on the sport fishing boat, Tori’s Seacret, out of Key West, Florida. The journey takes them into the ocean in the darkest hours of the morning on a fourteen hour cruise to Mexico. When the Trumbo’s don’t arrive at their destination in Isla Mujeres, off the Yucatan Peninsula, there is a coast guard search for three days. Their close friend, JP, a pilot, flies the waters of their route with no results.
