Question Offshore Boat Sinks off Catalina Island

The local news in Southern California today reported that a "38 foot Speedboat sank 7 miles off of Catalina Island on Saturday". All four passengers were rescued and are fine.

Does anyone know anything about this?

Talked to Kevin Schulte. It was not him. Good to see you are safe too Gary. I left you a VM. Kevin also said Nort did not go out today.

On Saturday we ran north to Long Beach from Newport Beach, heading into sets of steep swells with a 3'-4' chop on top. It was rough, but not too rough, you had to pay attention. The run back was big fun.

A run to Avalon, Catalina would have had quartering seas in those conditions.

The article says the engined stalled and they couldn't get it restarted. What kind of 38' boat has only one engine?
