Default Anyone On Here Sink Their Boat Today?

A good buddy of mine told me someone rolled there boat over close to shore today. I hate to hear stuff like that, and hope everyone is OK. If it was close to shore I got to think they were looking for Cobia.........

Was it anyone on here?

I'm pretty new to going out the pass. In fact, last year was my first year to venture out the pass. I have a 22ft kenner cc and would like to do all I can to avoid a situation like that. From the pictures on the other thread it appears pretty calm. what are some things that could cause the boat to roll like that? Assuming it did not have a tower.Reading my post I realize it's kind of a wide open questionbut I'll ask it any way.

I was one of the people on the boat from yesterday.

I'm gonna start from the beginning, I woke up to my phone ringing. Ian called me and said he had an extra spot open on his boat, so naturally I agreed.

I met up with him and 2 other buddies at Shoreline Park around 1030, but they already were trying to work on the motor. Shortly after we got it running and were in the water, Pass bound.

As soon as we cleared the Pass, 2 guys got up in the tower while I drove for about 2 hours. The water looked great and the seas weren't bad at all, maybe 2 -4 at most. We only saw one small fish the entire eastbound run. We turned around right at the Portofino Towers, then it was time for tower swap. Chris and I crawled up and got comfortable, but this is where it got bad. We had a big wave hit us from the portand the boatlisted hard to the left, so everybody leaned to the right to try and straighten it out. But as we did that, another wave hit and threw the boat hard to the starboard side and the boat listed wayyy too hard but there was nothing we could do about it, so we all jumped out. I swam down and out just as hard as I could to avoid the boat falling on me. When I resurfaced everybody was already on the boat and ok. I really think us all staying calm really helped the situation, also within 20 seconds there was 4 boats next to us and ready to help.We were helped onto Team Outcast, and waited for the salvage boat. We finally made it back to Day Break Marina around dark and had to do a lot of paperwork for the FWC. The whole time the Outcast crew took us in and treated us like we had known them our entire lives and I say THANK YOUto Tommy and everybody elseagain for helping. If we had been a mile from where we were, god knows what could have happened.

Sorry to hear about Ian's boat. I know this makes him very sad, as I know how much he loves to fish. I witnessed his love of fishing once on my Houseboat, The Playin' House, on a PFF trip to 3 mile bridge.

It's scary shit if you've never had it happen to you! I can't thank Outcast and everybody else that was there to help us out. I owe quite a few people a beer next time I see them.
