Well dad and I went out Thursday night after I got off work. We had 15 traps with chicken legs in them. After the second run we had 42 crabs in the basket. We planned on making 2 more passes. I still donít know what happened but. We were barely moving in deep water. No where near the edge or any oyster beds. But the front of the boat shot up like a rocket and the back went underwater quickly. In less than 15 seconds it was gone. Dad and I made it to shore . I was able to recover the boat the next morning. But I lost everything else. If anyone finds an orange dry box with a cell phone and registration and watch. Etc in it please let me know. I lost my aluminum paddle and a pair of waders also a blind bag full of lights. The crazy thing is that when I took my kayak out the following day, there was several bottles of water and the styrofoam tray that the chicken came on and useless items like that in the exact spot the boat went down. Now 3 tides have happened since it sunk and tiny items like that stayed right there but important things disappeared. Also had a brand new heater on board that would was keeping us toasty and a full thermos of coffee instead of our usual beers..but it could have been much worse. The water was 63 degrees and the air was 40 degrees so dad ended up in the hospital for a few hours just being monitored to be sure he was ok. Iím thankful he is safe and that my dog is safe too.i have a theory. Iíve seen a huge turtle out there a few times. I mean huuuuuge. First time I saw him I thought it was the hull of an upside down boat or a baranacly sheet of plywood. I wonder if He tried to surface when I was near him and h popped the front end up? Who knows....

Wow, had to be scary to deal with. Glad you and your dad are okay . Hypothermia is a killer when being in the water at that temp. As for why the boat flipped up , you'll be wondering about that for  a long time.  What type of boat was it?

Glad to hear you, your dad and the dog were ok.  Material things can be replace but human life can not.


Sounds like you had your Christmas Miracle this year.  Stay safe.
