Kind of a sad day for us here. My wife's cousin went out fishing yesterday morning...and like so many boats here in Maine, it never returned to port. The lobster boat sank pretty quickly, and while one guy managed to get into a skiff and be rescued, my wife's cousin died from exposer and hyperthermia.
Every year we lost 6-7 boats a year to the sea so this is not anything new to us, but it still gets to you. Kind of sad. So for those of you that are religious, keep this family in mind while praying. The family got hit hard this week. They just got done laying another cousin to rest on Saturday. He died in Iraq.
No matter what your beliefs are, please keep the poor fisherman in mind when you buy your seafood at the store. It is a hard, and often times, sad way of life. We figured it out that we have 7 relatives working out on the water this winter. Winter fishing is the worst. So to everyone that goes down to the sea in ships...God Bless.
