I am getting caught up on what happened Friday morning, as I was away. 42 foot Intuition was seining pogies near Rockport when the boom broke and killed a 60 year old mate on deck. T&Ps to the family.

I work in Rockport and know they called in the med-flight but it was too late. Sad to hear, Ts & Ps to the family/friends of the deceased. And now I also know what happened to the acres of pogies that disappeared overnight.
