I believe that anything is possible. Only one person returned is unbelieveable.Especially if you have been fishing for a long time and never had anything happen like this before. If the other boaters couldn't swim,I don't beleive they would be in the water,especially that far out in the sea. Something does not add up.

your chances of surviving in those conditions are very slim wether you can swim or not. they said the waves about 6-8 feet high at the time. so i dont know why you say something dont add up, especially when the lone survivor was found on a boat tipped over.
