Four of us were out of Cedar Key FL fishing at 10nm out on
Saturday 8/24/2013. We were anchored off fishing and saw the
electronics die and lost all power to start the engine. The engine
would not start so we called for assistance from sea tow. We could
not get hold of sea tow so contacted the coast guard at Yankee Town
Fl and they contacted sea tow for us. -
While waiting on sea tow we saw a storm brewing so we let out
250ft of anchor line in 30ft depth and tied to the lower eye on the
bow. We got prepared and pulled out life jackets and a dock line
just in case and I'm glad we did because the storm overtook us with
waves becoming approximately 8-12ft. We got out 1 mayday without
coordinates due to the boat capsizing so fast...
