Gulf Coast - Distress Call Yesterday in Orange Beach
THE HULL TRUTH is the world's largest FREE network for the discussion of Boating & Fishing. Whether you're researching a new boat, or are a seasoned Captain, you'll find The Hull Truth Boating & Fishing Message Forum contains a wealth of information from Boaters and Sportfishermen around the world.
Was out about 12 miles and heard a distress call of a 32 boat taking on water at about 10:30. Either a Seacraft or Wellcraft with a 3 foot long by 2 in wide crack in hull.
They had help and were escorted in by the CG.
Weather was 1 to 2, a beautiful day.
Hope they made it in safely and they were able to salvage the boat.
Anyone hear about it or know how they did?

We were out there too and heard it. Think it was a wellcraft. Never heard anymore about how they fared.

32 sea craft Miss Laney. They got it back to the marina and before it sank. It looked like the hull was delaminating. Coast gaurd meet them offshore and hooked up the big boy pumps to keep her up.
