DEPOE BAY — During a routine inspection, a boarding team from the U.S. Coast Guard checked the safety gear of a small fishing boat just three days before the 20-foot Bayliner mysteriously capsized off Government Point on Friday, Sept. 8, leaving two men dead. The boaters were identified as 81-year-old James William Warren, of McMinnville, and 69-year-old Robert Lawrence Zimmel, of Forest Grove. Neither was wearing a lifejacket, reported the coxswain of a USCG motor lifeboat that recovered the bodies.
