Too bad the boat capsized but certainly glad the crew made it to safety.

I am certain they, as well as others will learn from what happened.

Thanks for sharing the news.

Glad they survived it.

That's all that matters really.

Thanks to all the agencies involved!

Anyone know what happened? What caused the boat to capsize? I don't recollect any foul weather yesterday.

This was a fascinating tale of survival. I just wrapped up interviewing the survivors. I am going to put a story together and post it here.

Glad to see they were found safe. Back in 1998, a childhood friend of mine died in Lake Borgne after the boat he was on with his uncle and cousin capsized. If I remember correctly, he died of hypothermia rather than drowning. I know they floated in the water overnight clinging to the capsized boat.

There were a lot of lessons to be learned in this case, so I posted in the Boating forum for maximum exposure.
