The new video comes from a different fishing excursion earlier this month, when fisherman Matt Malo said the Patriot vessel had its windows blown out and lost its electronics. 

According to Malo's Facebook post, the Coast Guard helped the Patriot's crew get back to shore safely.

Malo told KEZI 9 News the video comes from the same area where the Mary B II capsized Jan. 8.

Joshua Porter, from Toledo died in that incident, as well as two men from New Jersey: James Lacey and Stephen Biernacki.
