No radio ? No flares ? No Beacon ? No Epirb? Sounds like a disaster looking for a place to happen

In this interview, the fisherman tells the boat flipped in 20-30 seconds after being hit by a rogue wave. Probably no time to activate any of those you mention.

That is a COLD sea. I have been on it several times. Spending 20 minutes in the water of the North Sea is torture. Kudos to the Belgian Air Force.
