The name of the young man who succumbed to hypothermia in the waters off China Poot Bay Wednesday morning has been released. He was 23-year-old Justin Vanderlooven of Eagle River, according to Homer Police Lt. Ryan Browning. Also in the skiff was the man’s father, 54-year-old Scott Vanderlooven, and a third man whose name is still unavailable.
    They were thrown into the icy, glacier-fed waters around 10 a.m. after being swamped and capsized by a current known locally as the China Poot Rip.
