Newbe Wannabe here, without a trawler to boot. But I read the postings in my emails all the time with great interest.
I sailed on the Coast Guard Academy square rigger Eagle, 300 some feet length,
back in 1953, as a Swab, to Bermuda, and only spent 3 hours there when a hurricane forced us out to sea. It was a real ride.
So when I saw recent NY Times article about big Trawler sinking off Nova Scotia, and the grand rescue joint Canada/US Coast Guard efforts that saved 32 crewmen, I thought I should post it.
