Network Tragedy



W WIND 5 TO 10 KT. WIND WAVES 1 FOOT. W SWELL 10 FT AT 12 SECONDS.

The Tillamook Bar claims 2 more lives in the sinking of the crab boat Network.
The same swell that provided big surf for the Nelscott contest earlier created standing waves of 15+ feet that swamped, spun, snapped and deposited atop the jetty half of the Network.
One man escaped onto the jetty. Two crewmen, apparently not wearing life jackets, perished.
Further south, at Proposal Rock in Neskowin, a woman apparently fell to her death.
