Here is some more info copy and pasted from the SE Seiners Facebook page: The tire popped on the travel lift. Boat shifted. Fell out of sling 8 feet above the water. The stabilizer fin punched a hole through the hull. Flooded extremely fast. Only a foot and a half of air in the engine room. Guys went from engine room to a state room where they found only a foot of air but also a port hole window. Opened the window and swam out. One guy was a bit too big but managed to squeeze his way through it getting lacerations on his upper abdomen. My old coworker was one of the six. He told me the whole thing.
