The mummified body of German adventurer Manfred Fritz Bajorat was found by two fisherman early March just 50 miles off of the Philippines.
And now a note has been found lying beside the tragic captain, 59, revealing his final thoughts to his wife Claudia.
“Thirty years we’re been together on the same path. Then the power of the demons was stronger than the will to live.
“You’re gone. May your soul find its peace. Your Manfred.”
He was married to a woman known as Claudia, who he broke with to go on his travels. She died of cancer in 2010.
Inside the cabin, fishermen found photo albums, and tins of food strewn all over the deck.

It is unknown the cause of death of Mr Bajorat. One theory is that he suffered a heart attack.
It is believed he has a daughter, Nina, a captain of a freight vessel.
