Capsized charter boat: four men missing

The small capsized charter boat of four fishermen was discovered Sunday, August 8, 2010, approximately six miles off shore and 25 miles south of Winter Harbor. No sign of the four missing men has been found, and hopes for rescue are growing less and less. The 19-foot vessel was not equipped with survival suits or an EPIRB. The charter was reportedly led by an experienced fishing guide, Kevin Sturgess. The fishermen were last heard from one week ago. Two fishermen from Washington and a third from Oregon are among the missing.

Charter fishing accidents have been some of the most deadly accidents along the Washington and Oregon Coasts. Remarkably, few safety regulations govern the fleet.
