in Oregon we loose people every year crossing bars at the wrong time. Last year even a 65 foot party boat lost along with the usual fishermen. This time of the year with the west winds the bars can be hairy.

Looks like he took on a lot of water. My Dad & I had a troller virtually identical to the one in the video, ran out of San Francisco. I often wondered how far over it could roll without going under. Better to watch it on You Tube!!

The San Francisco ship channel entrance can be really treacherous, don't ask me how I know.

Wow, that is some rough stuff. I like how the guy on the aft boat is just hanging out behind the pilot house taking pictures like this is nothing special! Those boats look like it would take a lot to do any damage to them, but I would not want to be out on the deck!

And I don't think the water is dirty so much as the bottom has been stirred up, anyplace that the water is that rough it will turn murky.

I remember once coming into Jupiter Inlet on seadoos and we were riding waves sort of like that such that we could not see each other in between waves.

I think I have seen that video before. Scary to watch those fishing boats completely disappear between the wave faces
