I must down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by....

Thank you Rick, Brett and tvtech for your comments. It's always a number of factors that contribute to an accident, but the irony in this case is that the majority of the crew of the sinking ship was so eager to go to the KCG rescue boat (therefore overloading it), while 4 crew members (including the master, as I understand) remained on the doomed ship... The first group got themselves in even greater trouble, while the second one was rescued some time later without problems. A sad story indeed.

Poor folks. Get rescued and than drown anyway :(

Thanks for sharing this image Vlad.
An incredibly sad event for the 'rescued' crewmen from this vessel.
The link you mentioned is a 'must read', for all the wrong reasons.
