Bad news for sure. I hope it's bad info. If it's true, hopefully there were other boats standing by to assist.

Damn tom, i hope thats not the case. We just left the pass this morning at5 am went about 8 miles and turned back around. waves were 3.6 at 4 second intervals. couldnt keep a comfortable planing speed. we are going to try it again at about noon if it backs off a little bit. were in a 38cc and i can see how a monkey boat might have a hard time out there last night if they had trouble with a bilge or something. keep us posted.

Got a little more info, it definitely happened, and it was a 33 blackfin. Apparently the other day, the owner of the boat thought that he may have hit a log and noticed minor leaking through the shafts. They went out yesterday morning while it was pretty rough, and just went fishin... They were at the ram powell (only had one yellow), and someone got on the platform and was knee deep in the water, thats when they opened up the fish box to find it full of water. They then looked at the engines and they were completely summered. Luckily, they said there were 2 other boats there, a resmondo, and a bertram...The bertram backed up to the boat, they then actually unloaded all of their tackle, and the boat sank. I think those guys are lucky as hell, and should be very thankful that there were other boats in the area. Regardless, just thought you guys would like to know.

I know my buddy Ricky Mcduffie on the Sea Hunter was going to be at the Ram. I will call him and see what he has to say.
