A former New Braunfels coach and his two grandchildren were among the 39 tourists and crew members rescued by ‘other pleasure crafts after their charter fishing boat sank into the Gull of Mexico Friday.
The Dolphin Express II, a deep sea fishing boat based in Port Aransas, had left its dock about 6:30 a m. and was about 12 miles off the coast when it began taking on water in the stern about 10:45 a m., said Coast Guard Lt. j.g. Kelly Roberts of the Corpus Christi Marine Safety Office.
Morris Smith, 60, Josh Abel, 9, and Kendal Smith, 6, all of New Braunfels, returned home uninjured late Friday night after leaving for the coast early that morning for their first deepsea fishing charter together. They often fish at the coast from a 17-foot boat Smith owns.
Smith said he had hooked a 30 pound jackfish while fishing on the stem about IO miles offshore. After landing the fish 25 minutes later, he returned to the stem to find auk Ic-deep water.
The three Clew members passed out life jackets as the passengers moved to the bow and tried to balance die sinking 60 foot boat to keep it from capsizing, said Morris, now a math teacher in San Antonio.
