The 40ft boat tipped so fast that none of the 47 passengers, most of them senior citizens, had a chance to don lifejackets. Mark Rosenker, acting chairman of the National Transportation Safety Board, said investigators would focus on the history of the boat, the pilot's record, whether the boat had enough crew members, and whether the number of passengers had played a role in the accident.
