On June 14, 2003, the small passenger vessel Taki-Tooo, a U.S. charter fishing vessel with 2 crewmen and 17 passengers on board, was en route from the marina at Garibaldi, Oregon, to the Pacific Ocean for a day of fishing. A small craft advisory was in effect for the northern Oregon and southern Washington coasts, and personnel at U.S. Coast Guard Station Tillamook Bay had activated the rough bar warning signs based on their assessments of existing hazardous conditions. At the Tillamook Bay inlet, the Taki-Tooo operator waited in the channel for an opening in the ocean swells so that he could cross the bar. After the Taki-Tooo exited the inlet and turned northward around the north jetty, a wave struck and capsized the vessel. As a result of this accident, the master and 10 passengers died; the deckhand and 7 passengers sustained minor injuries. The vessel, which had a replacement value of $180,000, was declared a total loss.
