    Boat capsized in pompano beach?

    I've had two people call me to say a vessel engaged in dive charters capsized going through Hillsboro Inlet today. Anyone know anything?

    Coral Princess Dive & Snorkel Boat is the current rumor.

    Next rumor: small craft advisory was in effect.

    Orlando Sentinel:
    One dead after dive boat carrying 23 people capsizes off Pompano

    This was the South Florida Diving Headquarters boat. Commercial op, I've dived with them several times.

    I just don't log dives
    Tough day for trying maneuver the Princess through the Hillsboro Inlet. I wonder if the release forms will hold up?

    Dive Charter Capsized

    PB220018.jpgPB220057.jpgPB220063.jpgPB220073.jpgPB220076.jpgPB220083.jpg

    I was kayaking in the intracoastal near the inlet and saw them tow the Coral Princess back into Hillsboro Bay. Then I followed Seatow to see what they were going to do with the upsidedown 45' Corinthian Catamaran. I saw the captain and mate at the BSO dock but couldn't talk to them. A sad Thanksgiving day on the water.

    I am sorry to hear this and most particularly that there was a death. Very sad for everybody.

    This inlet is known for large standing waves and often hazardous conditions for small craft even in otherwise generally benign conditions. Is it considered a navigable inlet by the CG? That is a large boat, must have been a big wave, they said a rogue wave, is that so?

    I wish the best for all involved.
