    I cannot fathom how they let waves come from behind on some of those and swamp and nose dive them under.

    Lack of attention, any guesses ???

    Have you ever navigated an ocean facing inlet? Not as easy as you think as the boat actually speeds up as the wave comes from behind, even if you have the boat in neutral.

    Props also lose their bite in white water, thereby reducing power and steering.

    The scene with the center console nose diving in as it comes into the inlet has other factors not seen on video, that boat was apparently already sinking and had a lot of water already in it.

    I've had mine out of Hillsborough inlet in Florida several times... There are pucker moments when the wind is meeting the outgoing tide!!

    I am under the belief that most of these boats had some type of problem for them to sink in the first place, some I am guessing bad choices by the captain.

    As to an ocean inlet, I boat, fish and hunt Lake Michigan and not always in a harbor or behind a break wall, their are some rivers you can experience outgoing water flow and incoming waves, scary stuff understanding how fast cold water can kill and how a deep river current can muck things up.
