"Station Oregon Inlet Case Update

Date: 02MAY2020
Time: 1138
Location: 200 yards East of Oregon Inlet buoy #6

Station Oregon Inlet received a call from our command center this morning about a 29 foot vessel with 3 adults and 1 child on board that experienced an impact from a breaking wave that took out both of the vessel’s engines. The impact was strong enough that it physically detached both engines, leaving the vessel without control in active seas. Our boat crew launched to the scene in an effort to recover the people on board given that the boat was in the surf zone and taking on water. The crew successfully relocated the vessel from the surf zone, however the water onboard continued to rise. We had another 47 motor life boat crew launch so that our first crew could prioritize getting the people off the boat and our second crew could send crewman over to dewater the vessel and take over the tow. Both crews were successful in their missions, as all people and the vessel were returned safely. Bravo Zulu team!"

I can promise you Jamie and the rest of her fine crew aren't finding it funny at all. No one in the business who really cares, gets any satisfaction from a sad event like this. When someone loses a boat and possibly almost their lives the vast majority of us are more concerned with learning what happened and how we can all make changes to try and keep it from happening again.

The seas don't look too "active" in the photos.

The boat certainly doesn't look like it's fun to tow with no weight on the back!

How is that even possible? Seems to me that the waves impact would not be much at the stern of a boat?

Maybe that's another one of those I'm going to build me a fiberglass bracket and attach it to the back of my good boat.
every time somebody tells me they're going to make one I just tell him to buy an aluminum bracket and bolt it on properly with reinforced stringers and transom

Should have used a little more 5200. Glad everyone was safe.

for sure.

I do know that Oregon Inlet when shes rough stands them sporty's up and guys will bump the bottom, some hit hard. Shes shallow and they say alot of those waves dont have much of a back either.

I would love to see some photos of the boat out of water. My guess was that the bracket was compromised and the lower unit hit the bottom?? No matter how steep a wave is, it should not take the motors off a well constructed outboard bracket. Nice looking hull!

Look at bracket , swim platform there but motor mount part gone. They either running at speed an ran aground ripping them off or they crossed over a wave and there wasn’t much water and landed on motors breaking them off . Might be a bracket that was integral to hull build

Those pictures are inside the sound.... Coast guard probably didn't have time in the inlet to snap photos mid rescue.
