    I live in Australia where we pretty much all live on the coast, where there are boats for sale everywhere, but I know two people who went to Asia to buy boats and sailed them home. One of the owners of boats in a Malaysian port was German and was selling it from there and the other was being sold by a French man in Indonesia. I think sailing it home is part of the adventure.

    I don't want to discount that possibility, but I don't believe it's easy-peasy. Canadian Border Control are aware of this possible smuggling strategy too, it's not an uncontrolled border.

    You have to report in by phone as soon as you cross the border by boat. You might be called in for inspection or allowed to proceed to port. But they know which boat is which and can keep a watch on you via radar, etc., and you're not permitted to so much as moor your boat, much less go ashore, until you've gone to an official customs boat dock. There is also surveillance of that area because of the lucrative commercial fishery.

    The backpacks are what bother me. The first guy in the video has a Cargo backpack that seems empty. He is not leaning forward, pack over only right shoulder and has a wide walking stride as he is walking. That pack could hold 100lbs and is at least 75l holding size. The other guy has two backpacks and they have weight to them as he walks. It seams to me that they were going somewhere to retrieve something that was remote and nobody would know them or pay attention to them.

    I’ve been getting “inlet” in my head. So I started to wonder how they could possible get through the inlet. Their boat is docked.

    I feel like if they actually headed in the direction they told the harbour manager, at least 1 person would see them.

    Then it hit me. Just a theory of course. What if they have a boat in the bag. I decided to see if that’s possible and found these.

    What do you guys think

    “Through” the inlet to where? Your post confuses me.

    I’m not saying they couldn’t/didn’t walk towards the parking lot then veer off to be picked up by boat & double back down or further up the coast by water; that’s actually a really interesting theory.

    interesting yes! but they would need to move the inflatable boat/paddleboard somehow and they don't have oars with them. By the looks of the sailboat they have (still pic from movie) an inflatable already on there with a small Yamaha engine on the back so it would have been way easier to use that.

    These come with motors. They would have to carry it in another bag. This is all theory obviously. But the bag looks similar

    If they don't come back for the payment I think we need to really get worried.

    Hi Roobz,

    I always keep hope in the picture, as well.

    In this mystery, I don't discount anything. I could even expect them to walk out of a spot in the wilderness. Foul play is also a consideration, of course.

    There are just not a lot of clues pointing in one definite direction, to me.

    At the moment I am leaning towards a particular theory, however, my mind is open in this case.
