No mention in any of the regular places and not confirmed by anyone so far.

I would imagine that this may just be a rumor.

This is NOT a rumor, I just called the Barnegat Light Coast Guard who confirmed a "performance" boat with 6 people "capsized". They would not give me specific details as to who owned the boat or what the manufacture was.
If you don't believe this, call the US Coast Guard yourself 609 494-2661.

Yes this is true, It was a 38 Top Gun Big Power with number 6 Drives, Red and Silver 2007.
This is the same boat that was at the Captains Inn on Memorial day moored next to the 50 Outerlimits for the lunch social.

I hope everyone's OK.
I also hope the "figure 8's and donuts" is NOT true.

My family and I were coming home from the BI buoy in Barnegat Bay yesterday afternoon and my son turned around and saw a boat with half the stern under water. I had the whole family in the boat and didnt want to turn around and there were other boats in the area helping out. I check it out with my binoculars and it went completely under and sunk. Just wondering if anyone heard anything about this and if there were any injuries? I had heard that it was a ciggarette boat and it flipped, but that's just word of mouth.

There were only minor injuries. There was a wonderful family that got to the scene immediately and apparently took the family to the municipal pier where they were met by emergency technicians and the Barnegat and state police. The family was taken to the hospital just to be certain everyone was OK.

Hey, thanks. I appreciate it. I was nervous that there were more severe injuries. Do you know how it happened? Was it a ciggarette boat?

The guy took a sharp right, then attempted a sharp left and went over his own wake. Yes, it was a cigarette boat. Found out that the wife did have a fractured right leg I believe.
