There is some real drama related to these boats. They made them just up the road from me. Some (possibly off duty) coast guard airmen capsized one at the mouth of the Columbia river a few years ago. I remember it well. Right in my stomping grounds on one of the most dangerous bar crossings in the world. I don't know all the details and there were reports of a coverup. I believe it put them out of business as the coast guard deemed them unsafe.
Fishermen recovered the capsized boat 4 days later in the ocean and towed in back upside down.
