As an update, according the the LA Times, they are in the process of using an ROV to search for the bodies and wreckage, as it is very deep. Here's the article:

"Remote Vehicle to Search Lake for 3 Bodies"

According the the witnesses, the boat hooked hard left, and apparently barrel-rolled. Speculation is a siezed engine or drive (mechanical failure).

This tragedy has hit everyone (including myself) very hard. As I posted earlier, we are trying to put together a tribute vinyl decal for our boats, as well as offer something for the families from the board members.

I'll try to keep you posted.
