Nice going there Lou.

Captain lost control of his boat while backing down and maneuvering on a Black Marlin off the coast of Panama. The boat sank but the crew was rescued by the photo boat.

They <he> kept backing down <reverse> to get line in faster and keep the fish on the surface and the wash kept coming into the cockpit faster than it could drain.

It happens more often than you think

It happens. If you're going to do that your boat should be buttoned up. Stood in waist deep water more times than I can remember, boat would (almost) always come back up.

Very real risk when backing against a following sea, and try to turn at that point and whatever water you've taken on shifts and changes the boat's roll center and next thing ya know, capsize time.

Plus if your scuppers have only rear drain, whether flaps or open, sea pressure will render them useless.. Shoulda dropped the fish, boat's worth more. Especialy if you are gonna have to swim back to port.

Skipper won't repeat that mistake, I'm sure... but believe me, dumber actions have taken place on the water. Especially when you add in alcohol and holiday weekends.

Hell Barfly and I used to go on the cod boats and it could be almost that deep at the rail sometimes when she rolled, and that was a head boat and we weren't even that far out...

I have been fishing offshore for 40 years. I gave it up 2 years ago after I was airlifted by the CG 110 miles off shore along the east wall of the Hudson at 8 AM.

We need pictures for the real story.
