According to USCG at 7:45PM: The boat and identities of those involved have not been released. Maryland State Police Trooper 1 and vessels from the USCG Actitivities Baltimore responded. 1 body has been recovered, the search for the 2nd continues. The accident occurred approximately 3nm east of Gibson Island. Cause of accident is still unknown at this time. Initial reports estimate the size of the boat to be over 30', and possibly jet propelled. Newschannel footage (Channel 13 WJZ) confirm the boat was a Cat type.

That's all I have right now. As we all know, most of the details as reported by the news are usually incorrect and many times exaggerated for drama effect. Two of the 3 inept news stations in Baltimore have already reported inaccurate information.

Some of the information coming by telephone (unconfirmed at this time) would lead CBPBA members to easily identify the boat and owner. Please keep those involved and their families in mind, and in your prayers. Until we get a full confirmation from USCG, let's keep this from getting out of hand.

I got a call at about 10PM with this info:

It was a new boat, brand new full canopy cat.
So far, there were two assumed aboard, and presumed deceased.
As of 10PM the boat was at Sandy Point, and the were attempting to right the boat. It was found floating upside down at in the Magothy River. As of the time of my update, no one had come forward that had seen the accident.
