I was working on a boat called the Challenger at the time and late that afternoon we were returning home after a day of fishing. We had heard no reports from the Coast Guard of a boat sinking but fortunately heard them yelling over the sound of our engines, located them and got them safely on board. Needless to say they were very happy to see us.
I had fished with them a number of times on the Challenger over the years but this was the first time they fished with me on the KKIV. Joe said it had been 23 years since that fateful day but he had recently sold his boat and planned on many more trips with us in the future.
