    Heard this on Channel 16 yesterday with the CG and the NSF. They really had their act together. NSF should be commended for how they took action and their professionalism.

    I went on a group guided "tour" on jet skis that we rented from Seaforth rentals and went up the coast to La Jolla and back. As soon as we got out of the bay, the conditions were pretty choppy and windy. I got invited to go just the night before and assumed it would be just in the bay. It was pretty intimidating to be out there on jet skis and I had no idea it was going out on the big pond. One lady about 30ish started tearing up and asked our guide if one of the other doubling up on their jet skis would take over hers so she could ride with her boyfriend and she did. The water was like a washing machine churning and there were some good choppy swells in every direction and winds to make it a challenge to keep up with our guide. I was pretty nervous but figured the guide would not take us out there if the conditions were too dangerous. It ended up being a lot of fun and we were airborne a lot of the way due to the waves. I kept thinking of how crazy it would be in my kayak out there. I'm sure it must have been pretty scary for these people in the boat.

    Huge kudos to those who rescued these men. I just saw it on the news that one is listed in critical condition. I hope they have a speedy and full recovery. Great job NSF! Things can turn around pretty fast, need to lookout for others at all times out there.

    ABC news at 6:00 is supposed to have one of the fishermen talking on the news at 6:00 to those who rescued them.

    That was my boat. They bought it last spring. Three of the nicest people you could ever meet and guys that fish a lot.

    The boat is an older Mako 20 CC. Very wide and stable, but low to the water. This just sucks.

    News said all three should make a full recovery. My prayers are with them.

    Wierd, it "sank" then they found it floating? I wonder if it flipped and the water flew out or maybe a bilge on a float switch?

    The boat is foam filled, I would be shocked if it ever sank.

    The stern is extremely low and could swamp backing down on a fish during a calm day. The boats original design was for the flat inshore waters of Florida.

    Sounds like a ball of white water hit the stern, flooded the battery compartment, and stalled the motor. Not being able to run the boat forward and flush the rear deck it most likely just filled up and tomb-stoned, sending them swimming for their lives.

    Scary shit. Hopefully all make full recoveries.

    I was on the boat yesterday for all of this. RJ, Derek, Brian, and everyone else who came together as a team to save these three guys did an incredible job! I've always preferred Seaforth over the other guys because the boats are nicer, parking is free,and the crews obviously know how to handle any situation. Way to go everyone!

    Just received this update from my Pastor on the 18 year olds condition. He had slipped into a coma.


    "Hi Pastors. I wanted to give you an update. I am still at the hospital. God has heard everyones prayers (of course). He has mercifully granted our requests! My nephew, Riley, is awake and lucid and breathing on his own and joking with his friends (in writing) the tubes are going to be taken out in a few minutes. All glory to God!!!! " - Lynne

    San Diego bay had MAJOR South wind. Heard repeated calls of boats turning around at the point as many were taking water over their entire boat. Very very rough. Thank God for the sport fishing guys. Glad all were saved.

    There is no worse feeling than being in the water when you aren't planning on it.

    There is no better feeling than seeing someone headed toward you for the rescue.
    ...believe me, I know.

    Awesome job by the NSF and others....Heroes for sure.

    thank God they are ok

    guys check www.buoyweather. com for swell and wind.
    small vessel advisory means boats smaller than 100 ft to me.

    Weather report was off by quite a bit that day. I had my eye on the nooa reports the few days before May 4th including the night before, and it was supposed to be less than 10 knot winds and smaller than 3ft swells. My friend and I were surprised when we got out there.

    I've turned around several times after loading the boat with fuel, ice, food and equipment for an all day trip and it's hard to do. Whoever named it the "Pacific" ocean chose the wrong name...

    Yes, I checked it too and it was way off. The swell was much larger than estimated and really mixed up. The wind was a clue when I was driving there. Common sense said come back in and don't try to tangle with mother nature.
