I feel badly for these guys--I had a 21 foot boat and sold it after one summer off the coast of Maine--very scary in rough waters. Need a bigger boat for the ocean if you have any desire to go outside of protected waters.

That is so sad.Does the Coast Guard not broadcast weather conditions to alert fishermen at sea that dangerous conditions are likely? Or maybe they did'nt have a weather ban radio,or things just happen so fast they had no time to get to safety.Please do'nt misunderstand me, I am not critizing the Coast Guard,because they are great.I just feel badly for them and there families,and trying to make sense of this tragedy.May God Bless them.
