The Honduran military rescued 55 from the ‘Capitán Waly’, which set out from Port Ceiba on July 1 to net lobster. Hitting stormy weather, the boat went down some 80 nautical miles from the coast near the Gorda Keys, northeast of the easternmost point of the Honduran coast.  >click to read< 16:59

    That’s a damn shame. That’s a Rysco hull built in the next town north of me. It had rigging and outriggers origanily. I know in the USA a stability letter couldn’t have been gotten to that vessel with the changes I see in the picture. In the Gulf of Mexico that hull rolled it’s ass off with outriggers and stabilizers down in side seas on it’s best day. Prayer for the men and families
