Tom Hefferan's motto was "You can beat the sea unless you make a mistake," and the 45-year-old angler was not the kind of person ever to make a mistake, his friends said. These same friends, all members of the San Fernando Valley Saltwater Fishermen's Club, cannot understand how the experienced fisherman, who is missing at sea and feared to be dead, fell victim to a boating accident last weekend.

Two men survived the sinking of their fishing boat by clinging to a hatch in the cold water off the Farallon Islands for seven hours, the Coast Guard said. Two others were missing and presumed dead. The Lisa Lorrain of Half Moon Bay took on water while crew members were sleeping and rapidly began sinking. Three men managed to escape from the boat but, the Coast Guard said, a fourth, Keith Young, 31, the captain, apparently never got out of the hull.
