Sadness in Dutch

At 9:50 AM this morning a crewman on the F/V Seabrooke became entangled in a crab pot line while setting gear and was pulled overboard.  A Coast Guard search has been called off until morning.

The Seabrooke has delivered wonderful quality bairdi crab to our company dock at times, some of which I used to top a pizza served to friends this past Christmas Eve and also served at a celebration of my wedding to Goldfish at my brother's house in Maine.  The crewman's family is in our prayers during this difficult time.

Just read about this via the Northwest Forum, Steve. There are many prayers being sent for this man and his family.

This is a very sad to read about this morning as we are all anticipating the return of many of the fleet for Opie season. My prayers go out to the family of this fisherman and to the whole fleet for a safe and prosperous season.

I hate hearing this. Captain Keith updated us about it on the Wizard board last night. It breaks my heart. My prayers go up for the family of the lost man and for the crew of the Seabrooke. I hope this is the last tragedy we hear of this season. God bless and Godspeed to all of the crews.

May we all keep him and his family in our prayers. And may we have a safe fishing season this year.

That is so sad, blessings and prayers to his family and relatives. On the other hand, we've all seen lines roil around the decks of these fishing vessels and, luckily to date, we've not had anything terrible like that occur on camera. Deadliest Catch is such an appropriate appelation. It is the dread and the allure of that profession.
