Another well known female captain...

Captain Linda Greenlaw, of Isle au Haut, Maine, became widely known as captain of the Hannah Boden, which survived “The Perfect Storm” in Sebastian Junger's best-selling novel. Captain Greenlaw had the last known contact with the Andrea Gail, a swordfish boat from Massachusetts, that sank with all hands, in the Halloween storm 1991.

Greenlaw was considered by her peers to be one of the best large commercial fishboat captains on the American east coast is also a best-selling author (The Hungry Ocean, Lobster Chronicles, All Fishermen are Liars, The Fisherman's Bend)
