I also initially thought the boat was destroyed by mating whales but they say the bodies were never found? And if I remember correctly there was a fairly extensive search conducted.

As far as what could have destroyed the boat, anything is plausible without hard evidence. But the bodies? You gotta think. It's the ocean. Anything in the water could have eaten them sharks, crabs, etc.

I agree, I had the same question about the bodies. But they also stayed sharks are in and out of that region. I'm sure at least one of them got a scrape or a cut. How many miles away can a shark smell blood again? Lol

You know what, it could be true, I mean, look at the giant squid, it was shown in paintings that they can sink ships, now look at what we found, the colossal squid! Fighting sperm whales!
I really doubt that the colossal squid is the largest squid down there, have you guys seen the long armed squid!( sorry for the squid thing just thought it would be interesting) I think the colossal squid could have been the only capable of standing up to megalodon
This is the long armed squid, might have scared megalodon away lol, it scares me!
Squids are a good theory. Anything is up for grand right now!

That's what I was thinking, the whales upturned the boat, and either they drowned and sharks ate them, or the sharks grabbed them as they where falling

A long ways! Correct me if in wrong but I heard their sense of smell is different too. You know how we can only smell when we breathe in? I heard they can smell through their bodies at all times. I wouldn't doubt it either.

Which is what makes the ocean so interesting.

Wow...my logic sounds stupid even to me now. How did I miss that.
My opinion is that it is very possible. The ocean is a vast unexplored place and I think large species have much better chance of being undiscovered in the depths than anywhere on land and it would not surprise me if a group was lurking was somewhere.
My main thing is that why haven't they left more traces? The giant squid left traces strewn across beaches while all this shark has left is a tooth from 10 000 years ago?

Yea they can smell through an organ extending from the bottom of the eye, to the snout, and to the other eye, they can smell a drop of blood from 1 mile away
