A fishing boat sank not that far away from where I live with the loss of the 4 crewmembers during NW gales and a temp. of -28C.  Although the cause hasn't been officially determined the photos taken during the search of one of the rescue craft would strongly indicate that the boat became topheavy and capsized.

 

A real tragedy to this small fishing community.

Coast Guard Ship Sir William Alexander 

 



  The pictures taken were on the Coast Guard ship Sir William
Alexander during the search for the fishing boat El Loda Cash which went down in the Bay of Fundy 3 weeks ago. 

 

It is believed the ice caused the fishing boat to sink.

You can understand why....a tragic event,

but awesome pictures.
