6/29/2013 Siesta Key, FL Rough Waters Sink Boat

High surf and rip tide conditions claim a 22 foot open bow boat on Siesta Key Beach, Sarasota FL.

A wave came over the bow and swamped and disabled the boat. The passengers escaped and made it to shore unharmed but the boat ran aground on Siesta Beach where it got pounded by waves from the strong SW wind. Ominious rain clouds and gusty SW winds prevailed as beach goes tried to get some beach time in before the expected heavy rains arrive.
