Default Speedboat flips in Barnegat Bay

My boss was telling me this morning that he helped rescue 8 people, (3 of them children) who were thrown out of a "Cigarette" boat which flipped on Barnegat Bay Sunday. My boss claimed the boat was doing figure 8's and donuts when the incident occured. He estimated the boat was 30-35', he said it was difficult to tell the length because the boat was upside down with it's bow sticking up, the stern was stuck in the mud. He said it was a yellow and white hull. SeaTow showed up quickly and claimed it would be a "salvage" opposed to a "tow" (bastar..s). Does anyone have a any other info? The accident happened about 4pm a mile north of Tice's shoal. A nasty thunderstorm was coming in at the same time. The passengers were transported to Barnegat Municipal dock.

Wow,

I was just docking my boat as the Storm arrived. I had seen a 29 fountain step hull with 2 guys driving completely out of control in the Bay just before the storm, When I first read this thread title I figured it had to be them. They were runnin around trying to race everything in sight pushing there boat WAY to hard. At one point as he tried to catch us I looked back and the boat was literally sideways and then slapping back and forth to the other side so hard I thought he was going over. Total idiot.

Hopefully everyone in the above mentioned accident was OK.

I hope all involved are ok.

I was @ my parents bayfront house in Barnegat and didn't see anything unusual between 4 and 5. We had a window where all the storms went North and South of us and we never got a drop of rain.

We were also out at about 5:30 for an hour or so. We ran to about the BB marker and back home to the bridge. I only saw a handful of boats out and nothing going on.

I searched and couldn't find anything either. My Dad lives on the bay and he hasn't heard anything yet either.
