Default Monomoy over turned boat

Any info on this?
Went out to the point around 1pm and saw Tow Boat towing in an over turned boat.

I didn't hear anything about this until reading this post. Any idea what kind of boat this is and if everyone on-board was ok?

Four in the water -- all rescued. Flipped in the rip. Plenty of news stories on this and earlier THT posts.

Tooth: IMHO there are lots of stories like this from Mass that don't get reported. In Dorchester Bay over the 4th there was a big sportfish that partially sank and a boat fire too. They don't all make the news.

Pitch poling or broaching definitely sounds scary as hell though.

All boaters need to keep in mind that the moon phases have a big affect on tides. Strong tides running over shallow bottom can be trouble.
Glad to hear everyone was rescued safely

Agree with you 100%. I was there and I was the one who called it out to the CG...The whole area was easily fishable accept that 50 foot section. it was obvious to stay away from it and there was another boat or 2 fishing it too. When I went by I said to myself that's a bad accident waiting to happen and about 1 minute later it happened.

I was out on Crab that morning and there was a big swell for quite a while coming out of the east. That may have been a contributing factor to the rough water there?
