Here around Boston many (all? beats me) professional lobstermen have put their boats away til late March or so. The real injustice of trips like the one you have responded to, is when foolish mariners get themselves into an avoidable pickle, it usually requires a group of USCG personnel to put their lives on the line to bail them out.
