Whats spooky is i was 1.5" of gunnel from being in that same situation 3 boats back. 19' seaswirl with a 200 on a bracket.... hung a shrimp pot on the bottom with a honda pot puller, learning experience for sure.... always have a knife handy pulling pots, dont back into swells, and most importantly know when to let go of the stupid line. No pot is worth your life!!

That boat has about a 100gph bilge pump. Look at that tiny little stream of water passing out. Of course no bilge pump could save the boat from that A team.

Awesome how they just kind of do nothing while it fills up.

The sinking boat does not appear to be a NR to me as it is not wide enough and they never had splash well motor mounts like that. It really doesn't matter what brand it is as is totally operator error. Boat is sinking well before they realize it. Watch the bilge pump cycling on well before the terminal event. Pulling pots and halibut anchoring have accounted for many sinking but are quite preventable.

    backing down into chop with open transom like that is beyond dumb, then moving to the stern to further sink the transom and let water flow over = Darwin Honor Roll

    I stand corrected as NR did make the sinker. It is unfortunate the capt did not recognize the signs. Experience can be hard won. Glad they all lived to tell about it.

    A Hewescraft should not be compared to a Duck or NR. Hewescraft, ThunderJet, and Alumaweld are fairer comparisons to one-another.

    You should seriously consider a cat though. An equally sized and even bit bigger monohull wil not compare to the ride of a cat. When the wind kicks up that 3' chop, you'll ask, "what chop".

    wow... you would've thought that he would have let go of the rope when she started bailing.

    That could've been easily avoided if they were paying even a little bit of attention.

    All good rules, I don't get in the boat without my captains knife. If a pot hangs up and you keep the winch pulling it can roll your boat over the side as well.

    This just looks like the wrong type boat for the job and a terminal case of the dumass.

    Note to self: once you start bailing, your done fishing. Focus on the job at hand.

    The dude standing there holding the rope really deserves a Darwin Award

    All they had to do is let go of the pot and start moving forward.....

    There was someone driving the boat but no captain.

    You gotta give props to gopro though. It is an educational film.

    Man i can't get my batteries to last more then a few hours!!! Must have pulled it same day...

    I read somewhere that the bow of the boat was still above surface, and one of the responding agencies pulled on it, allowing the bulge pumps to evacuate the remaining water. - Looks like he was still dragging the culprit pot, and a couple other lines. Noticed many other things get washed out as well.

    I would also look strongly at the electrical rigging of the boat when you are considering brands. I looked long and hard at the two and I felt there was a very significant difference in how the boats were factory-rigged.

    3 batteries minimum. Blue sea voltage sensitive relays. Etc. etc.
