Random Quote: Three-fourths of the Earth's surface is water, and one-fourth is land. It is quite clear that the good Lord intended us to spend triple the amount of time fishing as taking care of the lawn.

Captain Ian Keniston and Micah Tower are running the full day trip today.

At 5:00 AM EDT the air temperature was 70F, there was no wind to speak of, the sky was clear and the visibility was very good. More later.

And a bit of distressing news (to put it mildly). Billy McIntire took his boat, the Clover (a 42' Bruno & Stillman), out last night with a couple of girls and one guy. They had been drinking. The boat stopped around the bell buoy, so I was told. And, from what I heard, they were going swimming. One of the girls got into trouble while in the water. Billy jumped in to save her. He managed to get the girl to the boat where they hauled her aboard. But they couldn't get Billy aboard. Of course, no one knew how to run the boat. And the boat is equipped with a tuna door - which they could have opened to get him aboard. Now whether they even knew what a tuna door was, I don't know. But they were incapable of running the boat or saving Billy, apparently. In fact, the U. S. Coast Guard had to tow the boat back to Perkins Cove. The USCG has been searching the scene since very early this morning with no success. In the meantime, Ogunquit lobstermen have been searching the area as well. I don't know all the details and what I have told you came from our harbor master, Fred Mayo. He is a good source but only knows what he has been told. The McIntire family is very close to our family. And my fervent hope is that Billy is sitting on Ogunquit Beach watching all the commontion on the water with a beer in his hand. But my gut tells me something worse has happened. I pray for Billy and his family. Part of me is sorry and so sad that this had to happen and part of me is mad at him for doing such a stupid thing.

I was on the charter that talked with the coastguard and the people on the boat and it didn't sound
good. He was in the water 20 minutes when he got the call with no life jacket and after 30 more minutes nothing different but that helps me understand why the guy on the boat couldn't figure out
the man over board on the GPS. Hope there is some good news for him.
