A husband and wife who died when their boat broke apart near a California bay on Thanksgiving were experienced crabbers who were attempting to pull up their crab traps before rough weather blew in, friends said Sunday.

The couple, Nikolaos Afentakis, 83, and Eudora Afentakis, 78, of Pittsburg were found Thursday afternoon amid the wreckage of their 20-foot boat near Salmon Creek north of Bodega Bay, according to the Sonoma County Sheriff's Department.
