Around 11:15 today I saw two towboats near the reef. Then the Border Patrol boat arrived. A few minutes later, a Coast Guard helicopter showed up. So we got in the car, drove to East Point, and were in time to see the last two people rescued from the boat, which reportedly had a big hole in the hull. The wreck was 300-400 yards offshore. The last photo was taken at 11:59AM. The boat was still there 8 hours later. It couldn't be towed because of difficult water conditions and serious hull damage.
