Has there ever been a time when people were rescued by sending out a message in a bottle to drift across the sea?
- The "bottle" doesn't have to be an actual bottle. It could be a box, a cask, a barrel, any kind of physical item bearing a message.
- It does have to drift across the sea, though. There was an incident where some people off the shore of Costa Rica tied a message to a long line dragging behind a fishing boat -- that's not what I'm looking for. I'm looking for a case where the message was carried by the sea.
