There was another thread with a complete sequence of pictures and a partial explanation that the captain fell off the bridge with the boat in full reverse, and managed to spin the wheel while he fell .... did the boat in fact sink?

I have heard the number 1 cause of off shore fishing boat sinking is backing down fish

Or when 3 200+ pound guys all stand on one side of a 26' cc and try to bring a 600 pound giant aboard with block and tackle rigged to the enclosure tubing....in snotty seas.
Happened to a friend of mine about 8 years ago. Lost his brand new Regulator, gear and the fish. Fortunate that's all they lost!!. There were numerous boats in the area that day.

As my buddy always tells the adults on his boat. "We are the ballast, know where you are and where all the other big bodies are."

Yup. These were well seasoned guys too...just got caught up in the excitement of the fish and lost track of where they should have been standing.
