4788 Lost off Newport Oregon

In a story that has eerie similarities to a trip Carolina Pacific took, a 4788 Bayliner was lost off the jetty at Newport Oregon. This boat was being delivered by a crew from Stockton, CA for a California boat owner from the Puget Sound to my marina - Coyote Point.

CP stopped for fuel at Newport when we brought her down the coast in spring 0f 2002. We had a wild but safe ride heading in there when we crossed the bar. One major difference is that we crossed the bar before sunset, and not at night like this boat attempted.
