That 21' Everglades had a LARGE T-top wtih 4 point mounting. That seems to be a small boat to have that heavy of a rig up high.

Anyone think that contributed to the roll-over? 4 bigger guys plus that weight in even medium seas would be 'interesting" .

So sad.

Fairly wide boat, built to be stable with fishermen walking around on it.. T top doesn't add much weight, I can carry one around by myself easily. and the radar dome on it was also really not that heavy, what 45 lbs or so?

I heard on the Bubba show this morning that it was a rental boat they were using. The pounding from the waves also was tearing them up trying to hang onto the boat and the lone survivor received many bruises to his kidneys and liver from the pounding.

Sad no matter how you look at it.

Things can get nasty pretty quick And thats one small boat.

I have been in some nasty weather even here in LI sound and cant even Imagine how nasty it gets out there.

Feel really bad for these guys it can be pretty humbling out there alone in rough seas never mind on a boat thats turtled.

wondering if its gonna go down from under you any minute.

Gotta feel for these guys.

Been reading some articles I can find about this.. It seems a lot of small boats head out in calm water, then in about 2-3 hours it is 10+ foot seas.

I googled some articles about missing boats in FL and it has happened 200 times in the last few months

That is SAD!!
