The State

Three California fishermen survived a boat capsizing and three days in a storm-tossed life raft with little water and no food. Troy Vought, 28; Paul Hover, 34, and Dellard Grabes, 59, all of Eureka, were forced to take to a covered, five-foot-square life raft in heavy seas after a log became entangled in their fishing nets and rolled their boat to one side, capsizing it. The shipwrecked crew was spotted and rescued by a passing freighter 30 miles off the California coast near Crescent City. The men were taken to Seattle.
