Default Charter sunk down in Wildwood, NJ

I searched around, didn't see anything. Anyone have any idea what happened here?
Glad everyone got out and rescued. Sad to see it. Happened during a local fluke tournament; not sure if the boat that sunk was part of it, but the rescue boat was.

I skipped the tourney because of bad conditions overnight and into the morning.

All posted on the rescue boat Facebook page:

32' Rampage - should have been fine in those conditions.

I don't believe any collision was involved, but nothing in the reports. I was trying to see if anyone had any info how\why\what happened.

Glad everyone was OK.

I was out that day with 8 on board about 1-2 miles off shore, as soon as I came out of Cape May Inlet the ocean was really rough, I would say 3-4 footers with some larger.

Took a short trip on the ocean, not even to the Cape May Point when my son and 2 friends called wanting to be picked up at the marina.

Turned around and picked him up and with 11 now on board decided the ocean was not where we needed to be that day due to conditions.

The Bay was not nearly as rough.

The boat was an old 31 Rampage
Tight 3-5 ft seas
Captain not sure what happened but it happened fast
They took on water quickly and had no time to save her
They were drifting for flounder ,there was no collision

Captain John Beach did a great job in getting his charter into life jackets and off the boat safely
Kudos to my buddy Capt Ray Trainor on the Miss Addison
He did an awesome job picking up 7 guys in tough conditions
Hopefully good karma comes your way bud!!

Sorry, but where and how much earlier were there "tight 3-5 ft seas" before those photos were taken?

Photos of seas are bad way to record actual conditions. I was out in some serious seas and snapped some pics. Later looked at the pics and it just looked... meh.

Pics make it look much calmer
The TowboatUS boat blew a windshield out on his way to assist
He did not get there quick enough before she went to the bottom

we’re quite a few miles north of that area, 80 miles or so, but we canned our entire day because of the weather. The night before was 4-6 small craft advisory and into the morning was still terrible when the storms rolled through. The wind stayed up all day. A lot of people did go but it’s not fun in those conditions for me. My biggest issue is getting in and out of barnegat inlet with a big swell.

This is a story we hear a lot. It went down in minutes. Nothing we could do.

In reality, a lot of these boats were sinking for a long time, but nobody realized it until the cockpit flooded.

Not saying that happened here but it fits the pattern of a flooded engine compartment. High water alarms can save you if that starts to happen. Once it reaches a certain point though, it will end fast.
