Capsized fishermens’ boat shows up at Waldport’s Jaws…


“Sled” boat re-surfaces at the Waldport Jaws

Barely two days after a shallow-bottomed “sled” boat went down after capsizing and its two fishermen thrown into the chilly waters of Alsea Bay, the craft bobbed back to the surface – minus its motor on Monday. It must have been ripped out as the boat bounced along the jaws’ rocky bottom.

A crew from Central Coast Fire/Rescue came out and pulled the boat up onto the beach. It’ll be re-united with its owner. The owner and a friend were fishing in the sled boat which is better suited for a duck blind than a choppy, wave prone area like the jaws. It’s sides are very low and the bow tip isn’t much higher making it easy to turn over which it did last weekend when a wave caught it and flipped it over. Both occupants were rescued by another boater.
