A 25-foot aluminum fishing guide boat with six men on board went down in near the Columbia River bar, June 20, around 9:20 a.m. Apparently the boat flipped in heavy waves. All six of the men on the boat were wearing life jackets, so the crew of ERESA D, were able to locate and retrieve five men. A sixth man, said to be Craig Robert Biggs of West Linn, Oregon, had become entangled in line or net, and could not be resuscitated when the Coast Guard located him.
