Alaska Juris sinks

Aleutian Islands FIshing Boat Sinks, 46 People Rescued by Nearby Vessels | U.S. News | US News

220' fishing ship sinks, a boat with a history of issues on board, although that history would appear to be over now. Glad the passengers were all rescued quickly by other boats in the area.

Although very distant from the other sinkings mentioned here recently, still seems to be a rash of such taking place.

BanB,
Assuming your avatar is your boat ..
Are those four large dark spots on the hull windows?
Very unusual but work very well w the styling of the boat.

Yes, they are windows. Stylish, although I'm not personally thrilled with huge lower deck windows as a concept. They are why we chose a white hull such as the one in the stock photo. That is not our boat, just a stock photo. Main difference from a side view is we have an aftermarket hardtop. The darker hulls are attractive but the windows don't show up on them at all. Another thing we found odd is that each larger window has a porthole in it, in the middle on the master stateroom and at the aft end of the windows in the other staterooms.

The mention of the windows in the context of a thread on a sinking boat gives me pause. We were told to not think of them as windows, just transparent hull.

Funny, first time I saw your avatar, I thought of them as potential hull openings not a transparent hull.

I did too. They are well above the waterline but I still picture something like this....

Fortunately it's not a boat in which we intend to cross oceans. Well, unless you count crossing to the Bahamas.
