Oh No. I hate seeing things like this. But thankfully, it sounds like all will be okay. Shame about the boat. She's a beauty.
I hope for full recoveries for everyone.

The New Jersey State Marine Police station in Atlantic City identified the owner of the boat as Robert Gendelman of Pennsylvania. He was a passenger when the accident occurred.
From this quote, I'm led to believe that the owner was not in control at the time, rather someone else was driving.

Nothing. It can happen to anyone, in just about any boat, without warning when set-up is not right and experience in not enough. (See Video below for an example)

Most likely, but there's no way any one here now can know for certain.

Speed/improper trim/sharp turn/rogue wave???.....we can conjecture forever, but that wouldn't be proper. No one can say for sure except perhaps the three folks on board. But enough of that, let's just be thankful they're all fine.

That part of Assawomen Bay in Ocean City is very, and I mean very tricky... local knowledge is very helpful from the inlet North!! Hate to see this sort of things.

Glad all are OK, Pat
