Just yesterday it looks like a Maine fishing boat went down off of Cape Cod and the 4 men aboard are lost at sea.  It's a dangerous way to make a living.

Search on for 4-member crew of sunken Portland fishing boat

 

BOSTON (AP) — The Coast Guard is searching for the four-member crew of a Maine fishing boat that sank off Massachusetts.

 

The Coast Guard says the 82-foot Emmy Rose went down early Monday about 20 miles northeast of Provincetown, Massachusetts.

Petty Officer Ryan Noel says the Coast Guard got the emergency alert around 1:30 a.m. and was on the scene by about 2:30 a.m.

Crews found debris and an empty life raft.

Three Coast Guard vessels and two aircraft are involved in the search.

It is being made more difficult by 6- to 8-foot seas and 35 mph winds.

The Emmy Rose is based in Portland.

I had plans to go crabbing in the Bering Sea a long time ago. That fishery is done in winter. Pays very well, but is dangerous as hell. My wife at the time said "Absolutely NO."

Kind of like hazard pay. I'll stick with looking at the pics. tom. :cowboy2:

Industrial fishing, in the South China sea, parts of Africa, etc. are rife with kidnapping, debt bondage, slavery, human trafficking, etc. Islamic State was and still is using industrial fishing as a source of operating funds.

Great pics Walt. My aunt and uncle fished down on Bristol Bay (Graveyards) and out of Dillingham. Some of the stories they tell.

That's the cop that likes the bar brawl, the medic who likes the overturned bus full of migrant workers, the nurse who digs working codes.:noooo:. :599c64828c137_outtahere:
