    Local Police Helicopter was able to get an HB Lifeguard on board and arrive very quickly.

    Looks like Mussel Farm area, prayers.

    Thoughts and prayers for the two men.

    In those conditions the boat likely rolled after it flooded.

    Missing drain plug while going out, maybe? Only found out after arriving at the farm, it's not far from the harbor.

    Another possibility is they got wrapped in the under water rope - one of the reasons I refuse to get that close to the farm.

    Must've happened fast. Hope for the best.

    Those cables are pretty deep and the float lines are strait up and down weighed down with muscle growth. Although I agree, best bet is to give it clear passage, but I would bet you could troll down and between any of the rows of floats and not come close to snagging the cables and ropes. I am going to check out this year via scuba see what it’s like.

    I don't think it is that hard for a smaller boat to capsize.
    Everyone of you, yes everyone thinks that if the shit hit the fan you would be the one that would keep a cool head and make the right call. the reality is that the vast majority of you would freeze or would be running in circles... you will only know if you are one of the few who keeps a cool head when the shit hits the fan, when it happens, no matter what you think until it happens you really don't know. there are a lot of things that can cause this to happen and if neither one of these guys was able to react and ,make the right call and make it quick... there you go. The ocean is a very unforgiving place, Shit happens and it happens fast. think about that when your drinking and smokin while your the skipper.

    It’s really quick and simple for boats of various sizes to have serious issues fast. It’s important for all boat owners to have a real hands on attitude for making repairs and study their boats mechanics as well as they can. No one can be ready to tackle certain mechanical issues that may come up out at sea but keeping it floating is paramount to saving lives.
    I recently watched a post here in BD of the boat in WA that took on water and rolled right over.

    That sounds terrible.

    Hypothermia is a killer in our waters, even with the fast rescue times. Don't know what else they could've done in that situation, maybe dry suits or a lift raft?

    Sounds like you have figured out how to be better than the rest of us. What is your secret?

    Be it as it may........ hoping for families to recover in a sad and difficult time.
    The ocean that we love can be deadly. No-one here can say they never made a mistake on the water. The difference is we have lived to fish again and hopefully learned from our mistakes. Rip

    I echo your thoughts.

    IMO age can play a significant role in survival. I am the same age as these gentlemen and if you were to see me you would say I am in excellent shape. The reality is that I am half the man I was when I was 55. Strength. Stamina.

    Cherish the physicality you have while you still have it young men. I, for one, am envious.

    Godspeed.

    English your second language or is your reading comprehension just that bad?
    So neither one of you two think that you would keep a cool head when the shit hits the fan? Because that is the only thing that I said "everyone" about.
    If either one of you can show me where i said i was better than you or better than the all the rest, I'll kiss your ass... but since i never said that, blow me!
    The whole point wasn't that i am a star and you are a piece of shit, it was that most people freeze or don't know what to do when they should be doing it and an avoidable incident can quickly become disastrous, and if you are the one in charge you should keep that in mind before drinking and smoking pot. Contrary to what you may think, no one is at the top of their game when they have a buzz. So go scratch your ass, smell your finger, eat shit,and bark at the moon and die.
