Scary Stuff

My mate sent me a link after hearing about a dramatic rescue from the sea where we often go fishing.
Only the other week we were fishing off Lendal Foot along the coast towards Girvan and Ballantrae as well as going to the small island of Ailsa Craig which is a 10 mile open sea crossing.
Lovely day out with my mate and his 9 year old son in the Honwave T3.8.*
Reading this article and watching the video link sent sent a shiver down my spine.

Can't believe they went out without a VHF and not enough life jaickets onboard.
Could have had a very different ending

We're up in Carradale on Kintyre and the site owner Colin was showing me the video as the people have relatives here .Any ideas how it sank.

I haven't even put my boat in yet as it's blowing a bit, hopefully today.

Hope you managed to get out Paddlers. We are only 20mls or so north of you as the crow flies and Sunday was so wild we didn't even manage to set the boat up... but did so today and despite some remaining squally gusts are just off out for the second time.

It's how they generally do it

That said, Pikey is almost as cryptic as gaRfiE in his assessments: There's not much to go wrong on a Sheltie type boat - unlikely it cracked open like an egg (but possible if it hit a solid floating object) and they generally don't have through hull fittings. They DO tend to have tansom wash boards (which get forgotten or removed due to large engines) and are frequently crewed by very large lads carrying trays of beer. Throw in a bit of a sea and an engine issue and you're taking water. Doesn't take much.

Which is kinda why I have a floaty boaty

Yep I saw you sneaking into the dingy finger. Well done going out for second trip. Yes Sunday was hellish. Did you see my mates boat on the shore at Kentalllen his strop severed with the storm and the big blue on the running line just in front of your cottage was flooded down both engines u/s. Argyll summers !! B

The water looked pretty good, hardly rough seas. Does anyone know why the boat sank, was it just a simple case of leaving the bangs out?

Oh dear... are we that distinctive? I'll PM you.

I know... what was it about a force 8 on Sunday with torrential rain... Monday morning out on the water some fierce gusts almost taking my hat... then Monday afternoon as below...
