There are 9 passengers confirmed deceased. Eight patients were transported to Tillamook County General Hospital, and two passengers are still missing.

...and then there is the hearsay from the checker at ODFW:
The captain's name was Douglas Davis, and the deck hand, Tammy Buell, was reported as alive. Three other charter boats are out, ahead of him, and crossed the bar without incident.

Earlier witness report:

Pete is camping at Bar View and just called.

There is a terrible accident happening.

It was reported the "Tackitoo" went down with 19 people aboard.

Anyway, 1/2 dozen ambulances, dozens of fire trucks, helicopters and reported, 9 dead.

My heart is wrenched. :depressed: Pete has his daughter, and he can't go down there, and doesn't want to. I guess they are laying out the bodies. :depressed:

Here is the latest report. Remember, this isn't fact until reported by the authorities. This is all hearsay.

7 walking
6 dead
5 still missing.

KGW in Portland has confirmed from Coast Guard sources that a 32' Charter Boat has gone down. No further confirmed details available. 3 helicopters and all available CG craft are on scene.

That's all the report that I have.
I'm going to the fin clipping now.

Just keep everyone in your thoughts and prayers. I am horrified. :depressed:

Pete called and said the ocean is breaking all the way across, several times. Not a pretty bar to cross.

Keep all of your opinions about "why and how" to yourself until we know the facts, please. This is no time to preach that "they shouldn't have" etc...

Please don't go there, OK? Just join in with positive prayers and support for those that are in need.
Thanks,

Jen

BREAKING NEWS: Fishing boat capsizes off Ore. coast, at least several dead
06/14/2003

By kgw.com and AP Staff


Several people are believed dead after a charter fishing boat carrying 19 people capsized off the Oregon coast Saturday morning, officials said.


The U.S. Coast Guard says a rescue operation is underway and 16 people are accounted for.


The 32-foot Taki Tooo fishing boat capsized as it sailed out of Tillamook Bay.


Three helicopters and two life boats are searching for the other three people in 15-foot surf near the mouth of Tillamook Bay, said Coast Guard Commander Patrick Brennan.
