Two boys and a man have been rescued from waters roughly 80km south of Perth after their boat capsized.
The 5m fibreglass boat started taking on water after being swamped by a large wave about 4.20pm on Saturday, West Australian police said.
A man in his 30s and two boys, both aged 9, clung to the bow of the vessel for about an hour as they waited to be rescued.

The man was able to make an emergency broadcast from a handheld radio that floated free from the vessel about 4.40pm.
Water Police, a police helicopter and officers from Mandurah Marine Rescue were able to locate the vessel 20 minutes later.
The trio were found floating in the water about 10 nautical miles west of the Dawesville Cut.
Peel Water Police officers pulled the trio from the water and provided first aid.
The boys and the man were treated for hypothermia and jellyfish stings.Internet Explorer Channel Network
