Type of center console that went down in Jupiter Inlet?

I saw the following video of a center console going down for good in a bow dive in heavy seas of Juppiter Inlet. What kind of boat is this?

Wow, that's pretty interesting. Wouldn't think the floatation of the bow would allow that very easily, You'd think it would rise before taking all that water in, but the water movement must have done it. The crest of the aft wave pushing the stern is perfect space with the wave at the bow to make it happen. One little scoop and she submarines! Too much speed.

I would say the load in the fish boxes up front may have had something to do with it. Also some poor driving.

That seems to be a flavor of Panga.....and a poorly driven one at that. Speed is not always the answer.

Jupiter Inlet has been the scene of some nasty wrecks. I recall a big sport fish getting rolled there a few years back. That boat survived but the captain was badly injured.

In my younger and stupider days I surfed a kayak in the breaks there. Great fun—- as long as you don’t mess-up

Oh it is. I am willing to bet he closed the throttle which dropped the bows just enough for the wave to come over the bow. Had he kept the power on and the bow trimmed up then it wouldn't have happened. Easy enough mistake to make if you are not used to operating in a seaway.

I wouldn’t call those short steep waves a seaway. I would have opted to ride the back of those rather than power over and down. They just look too steep and close together to fuss with.
