Tragic Accident

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/wales/3604531.stm

Respect the sea - even the pros can get caught out -

"A body found on a north Wales beach has been identified as that of missing lifeboat coxswain and Barmouth harbour master, Keith Allday"

It seems 2 men went out in a 15' boat (don't know if a RIB) to lay some moorings - boat was found capsized and the 2 men are missing.

What more can be said - the poor families.

It wasn't a rib, but it is a very sad incident. Both men known to a lot of people in Cardigan Bay area.
We were out on Monday as well, it wasn't so bad f3-4. There is to be an investigation into the tragedy.

Sad news doesn´t matter in what kind of boat they were in. Accidents do not send any prewarning and doesn´t matter wether we are experianced or not. Condolances from us in Iceland to those involved.

Condolances

Hi All,

Very Sad news indeed. Any loss of life is tragic especially when it is unexpected.

I hope that once the investigation is compleated we get to know what the cause was. Will allow to understand "Why".

"The sea has no friends only visitors and will take anyone who is unprepared".

My condolances to the familys of these men lost.

Regards

Deepest condolences to both families and friends of these two men who have dedicated their lives to saving and helping others at sea.

I understand there are two investigations being launched, one by the council and one by MAIB.

A very sad loss.

Terrible news, and was actually getting discussed quite a bit up here in Ponterwyd, 12 miles inland. Saw the Criccieth lifeboat being recovered on Tuesday after returning from searching.

Not good to hear. Sounds like they were well experienced so I wonder what went wrong.

If anyone has any more information about the enquiry please keep us posted. Has there been any mention of whether or not they were wearing life jackets?

John

John,

Don't know much more other than that an empty life jacket and fuel tank were found floating next to the capsized dingy (outside the harbour wall, I believe).
