On the morning of the 17th July 1995 two men were engaged in salmon netting on the eastern side of Inver Bay between Buncronan Point and Drombeg Point (see Appendix 8.1). Their small open boat was seen in a partially sunken condition at about 0700 by other salmon fishermen in Inver Bay at that time. One body was found floating about 50 yards from the partially sunken boat. The other body was found close inshore about two hours later. There were no witnesses to the sinking.
