24-year-old, Nikki Walsh and her 26-year-old boyfriend Tanner Broadwell from Colorado were over the corporate lifestyle and decided to sell off all of there possessions, moved out to FL and bought a boat to sail around the world together.
They set sail last Tuesday and the next day, the boat sank. :( Apparently, they hit something that was underwater, the cabin flooded, and they had to abandon ship. They were rescued, but the boat is a total loss.
Well, since their story went viral, they set up a GoFundMe . . . and they've already raised over $14,000. Their last boat cost $5,000 to buy and $5,000 more in repairs, so they've already got more than enough to get another boat and try again! AWESOME!!!
