    Heard the MAYDAY call from F/V REEL VIKING this morning. Coast Guard responded, but the PASSPORT was first on the scene got the crew and passengers of the burning REEL VIKING. Everyone was safe with no injuries, last report I heard on the radio. God put the Passport in the right place at the right time. Thank God and the Passport for the rescue operation today.

    Took my kid out for a morning boat ride so it was a late start. Heard some chatter on 16 from coasties and the lifeguard boats flew by us going out the channel.

    Then I tuned in and heard Passport was there and saved lives. Awesome. Kudos to them for both being there and helping.

    As much as I hate being crowded out there on the water, it is good to know there are people close if you need them.

    You know whats crazy is I was just talking to someone about the boating community in general. No matter what type of disagreements we may have with someone either on the dock or here on BD, if the shit ever hits the fan everyone generally takes care of each other if they are able to, even if it means it will "ruin" or cut short a day on the water/fishing.

    I think everyone that has been in the boating world, be it fishing, pleasure boating, sailing etc. knows the seriousness of what most non-boaters would consider minor and how quickly it could turn into a catastrophic event.

    Even something as "simple" as a dead battery. A non-boater would say "sucks to be him, he should just call someone and get a jump," a boater would say, "we need to go help this guy out, without a battery he has no power to maneuver his boat safely, without a battery, his electronics are going to be extremely limited and how long does he have until he has no power at all and will literally just be adrift and hoping to be seen."

    This is the 3rd incident THIS YEAR that I know of where other boaters saved / potentially saved the lives of others.

    That's the end of my rant, I will get off my soapbox. Good on the Passport, good karma is definitely going their way.

    It is a good rant, and I agree with your findings. Seems like when a boat is in trouble others boaters live by God's view of humanity, the second Great Commandment. Too bad boaters do not live by it all the time.

    Ditto- that is a good rant. Outside of rendering assistance being the law (and good karma) everyone should keep in mind there but for the grace of God go YOU. If that happens I'm guessing everyone would want the same treatment.

    Why did God allow the boat to catch fire in the first place?

    Glad everyone is safe. Curious what make/size the boat was. Was it a Viking? Looked like a bow rail and pulpit as she sank but couldn't tell the size.

    It was a 36/ Pacifica six-pack boat out of Mission Bay. I won't mention they name of the Charter company as they have removed all information of this vessel from their website.

    What's so weird about her saying that??

    It's a pretty common saying actually when losing power on something powered with twin or better engines. Sounds like a smart gal to me.

    Ok, I now see what you are referring too, it's her words "shortly after take off"

    Ok, maybe a ever so slight mistake there..... but really not all that bad. ;)

    Saying "Lost a motor shortly after launching" or "Shortly after departure" would have been more appropriate in this case.
    Opinions vary, just sounded wrong to me. Carry on
