F/V Network sinks on the Tillamook Bar

The F/V Network capsized Friday morning as they hauled their crab pots out over the Tillamook Bar to begin the 2008-2009 Dungeness crab season.
Here is a link to the video taken as the incident occurred
Of the three on board the boat, two crew members were lost.
Our shipwreck chart also carries a list of the lost fishing vessels from this region, making the chart unique in that aspect.  

The list, showing the letterpress technique on handmade paper used to depict these lost vessels. This is the largest and most complete list available, and is updated as boats are lost.  Not all represent loss of life, thankfully, but many such as the F/V Network, do.  (click to see the chart they are a part of)

While it would be a comfort to never add to the list again, we continue to update the list, and in doing so offer a somber remembrance to those who make their living in the waters of the Pacific Graveyard.

Presented with respect to the families, the survivors and those who have been lost in this pursuit.

The survivors of the F/V Network loss, friends and family have our condolences.
