We are not hearing any radio talk today. We seen one life raft go by at 6:30 pm yesterday that was called in and had another platform call in a personal beacon on the water this morning that coast guard was going to check out. The weather is terrible again at this time. Sending more prayers to all the families involved in this tragedy

Please excuse this landlubber, but I’m assuming those waterspouts are equivalent to our tornadoes? I thought I heard him say “200mph winds”. That would be tornado type weather on the water, right?

2 recent updates from someone whose family member who was on the lift boat .... I chose not to publish her name or the families name out of respect ....

I'll post more updates once I can verify factual information

Kevin and Tina ... Sending you LOTS of prayers

Update: 12:38 pm Thursday
Coast Guard has come to speak with us, they are diving NOW! They are doing everything within power to get to boat. He did confirm that the pic below was from Tuesday night about 8:00pm that what looks to be is 2 guys in the hull with movement. The divers are working on efforts to get to that hull and they also as we pray could be more air pockets that are just not in this picture. They was able to get to the piece that is sticking out and hit on it with hammer to see if they could hear anything. They had to back off quickly again because of the weather.
8–10 divers are in at a time now and they said it could take up to 4 days to clear the boat with today being day 1. Donjon are the divers Seacor has contracted, as Coast Guard sweeps the waters.
I hope this makes sense as I am fully in disbelief this is even taking place, ***x ****** is coming and I am going to go home for the night. So I will then be getting updates from him. I will keep everyone as up to date as I can, while we duck the new reporters. God please get this Monster drinking, arm wrestling, duck dynasty boy home to his kids and mom!


Update 11:25 am Thursday: Weather conditions have made this operation hard, we will receive full update of events in about 10 mins the man from Seacor is on the way now. Once he gives us what he has I will share. I know we are praying for that air pocket, miracles happen! We will get him back alive! Keep the faith for ***x and the other guys! I will give more soon.



here is a link with marine vessel traffic , you can see the various vessels in the vicinity of where the Seacor lift boat capsized. It's just south of Port Fourchon

https://www.marinetraffic.com/en/ais...y:29.0/zoom:10


a picture for reference how lift boats are used for offshore work

Supposedly the Coast Guard is bringing in a big vessel to try to use as a wave block so that they can get smaller boats closer to the capsized boat.

We got the same message that Blake posted, along with the thermal image, that comes from a CG flight pattern with thermal.

The last communication, that was with a friend, said that Quinon was going to take a nap, at about 4pm when he got to the boat. It tipped at 4:30pm. There's a chance that he was inside, sleeping when it happened.


Oh heck Kevin I didn’t see that it was your kin folk . We will be praying for y’all .

The divers have studied a blueprint of the boat and found numerous places that could trap air. Today, divers are supposed to enter the ship and start the search, concentrating on those areas.

The weather has been the factor slowing the search. They're also only diving during the day time which doesn't make much sense ... once they get into the boat they'll be dependent on torches anyway.

Coast Guard did confirm that one body was found 33 miles from the jackup boat. 6 have been recovered, 2 bodies, and 11 are still confirmed missing.
