Editorial Reviews

GONE: The Mystery of the DON Disaster explores the strange disappearance in 1941 of the pleasure craft DON with 34 people on board. The sea off the rocky coast of Maine has held its secrets about this terrible loss of life ever since. The event remains one of New England's worst boating disasters.
The doomed passengers boarded the 44' DON with only lobster and fun on their minds. Little did they know that their rum-runner Captain was transporting them on a raucous ride to sudden death.
No one lived to tell their tale nor have those left behind been able to unlock the secrets in the intervening years. Until now. An adventurous team of filmmakers explore the mystery and in the process add a new chapter to this maritime disaster's story.
The one-hour documentary, shot in high definition at the original Maine locations, is an intriguing reminder of life's unpredictability. Powered by a soundtrack of original music, various theories are investigated and possible sites of the tragedy are explored. This new analysis uncovers a possible answer to why the wreck of the DON was never found.
The DON disaster was a catalyst and eventually maritime laws were written to improve passenger and boating safety. The film puts faces on the personal price paid for those changes.

When sold by, this product will be manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media.'s standard return policy will apply.
