Anyone have any info on this?

Looks like it is on anchor. Glad all aboard got off safe and had a beacon.

Looks like a Glacier Bay....

It looks like it was anchored? That appears to be the anchor rode dragging towards the stern over the sponson.

Anchor rope stretched tight to the stern.
My guess is they caught rope in prop, boat swung around anchored from the rear, SWAMPED!
Happens WAY too often.

That would be my guess as well, but looks pretty calm, maybe some other issues going on too.

Hmm.... I hadn't thought about that - I'll pay more attention to my anchor line from now on.

Sad thing, though - "not wearing life jackets". Even if I wasn't wearing mine, it would have been floating as the boat swamped and I would have put it on immediately.

Comments are ridiculous acting like they know exactly what happened!

"CitrusCo Citizen Apr 1, 2019 2:07pmNot a sailing vessel, but some sort of double hulled flat bottom--perfect for catching strong winds and flipping off the top of a wave. Gotta watch out for that chop out there if you don't have a v-hull. If there are small craft advisories and the wind is over about 15 knots, don't go out there with a boat that doesn't do well in 3-5 foot swells. And even so, make everyone put on life jackets."

Better watch out for that chop if you dont have a V-hull

Default Capsized boat and USCG rescue

Just saw this. Looks like a capsized Glacier Bay. Four people not wearing PFDs rescued by the gallant men and women of the USCG. Anyone have any info?
