Written a bit sensationalisticaly I fear.

Duncan, B.C., sportsman Lauren Holman says he has recently encountered boat-sized squid, some weighing more than 100 kilograms. Sometimes, larger squid attempt to board fishing vessels.
:roll:

It took me a minute to recognize the source of this story even though most of us are well familiar with SeaWolves' (aka Scott Cassell's) initial adventure with the humboldt:

a diver-photographer was attacked so aggressively by a group squid that his arm was dislocated, his body was ripped by bites and he was "gang-dragged" down 30 metres before he escaped
gang-dragged by a single squid:confused:
