I heard it was taking on water earlier today. They were trying to get everyone off the ship.

Hope the Captain and mate were just lost in the confusion.

Doubtful. Local news here is reporting some huge seas out there. Even if they are in survival suits, its a bleak situation at this point.

Looking through some other notable sources, it appears the shipmate was found unresponsive and the captain is still missing. I hate to agree with FF, but doubtful he will be found alive.

I hate to see any loss of life, but this was a 100% avoidable situation!!! This dumb fucking moron left from up here in new England this past week knowing full well and good this massive fucking storm was turning away out there!!!! I am just glad the bulk of the crew didn't die from his flat out stupidity!!!!

One of my good friends was on a coast guard cutter that saved a bunch of lives pulling people out of the water. The rescue boat was half the size of the sailboat.
