View Full Version : Fisherman lost

My boy is fishing next to this boat.

So far he does not know who went overboard but he is friends with all of them.

Thinking maybe the line got around his leg and he went over with the pot, Then the line got caught in the prop as they stopped..

Well, there's a world of grief opened up for somebodys family .

Tell your boy to be careful, the best time of the working day is going home time.

Lordy I hate to hear this kind of story. Tough work. Tough conditions. Tough folks. My heart goes out to the family.

The families suffer. Knowing how dangerous fishing is does nothing to diminish the grief.

Sorry to hear this. We always hope that "this will be the season that nobody is lost", but we are all too often disappointed.

Condolences to families & friends...

Sad news. Condolences to friends and family.

We lost a fisherman here just a week or two ago. His boat sank under him in the bay and nobody could get to him in time.

An old Sunni proverb....The best thing you can bring home from your travels at sea is yourself...

deeply sorry.... I urge you all to pay what you can to whatever life saving Society... The RNLI in UK for instance...its utterly shameful they rely ENTIRELY on public donation and fundraising.
