I saw that report too, and didn't think there was much surprising in it:
Fatigued crew, Overloaded with more and oversize traps, Several modifications to increase load carry capacity, Pushing into heavy weather, failure to comply with stability eval requirements. Sounds like a not so atypical crabber story, only this time they didn't fool mother nature.

Sad to see, but hopefully the USCG report and recommendations will help avert similar situations in the future.

We had king crab last night to celebrate Dotty's 80th birthday. Here's Seattle's Fishermen's terminal memorial to those brave souls lost at sea.

Agree Ken. Thought it was an outstanding piece of reporting. Gave three dimensional life to all the principal characters as well as the details of the doomed voyage. Ever since Moby Dick some 50 years ago, I've been a sucker for a good man vs sea story.

Stuff happens.

Maybe seamen are some of the bravest among us.

By chance, about this time some years back (actually 07 Mar 2010),
I was aboard the M/N Via Australis. We not only "rounded the Horn",
we walked on it where there was a large albatross memorial with a
moving inscription dedicated to those who have perished in the sea
not far away from that point:

"I am the albatross who
awaits you at the end of the world.

I am the forgotten soul of the dead seamen
who sailed across Cape Horn from all the
seas of the world.

But, they have not died in the fury of the waves,
today they fly on my wings, towards eternity, in
the last crevice of the antarctic winds."

---Sara Vial

Aye.
