Default Missing 80' fishing vessel off Provincetown

The U.S. Coast Guard said Monday that it is searching for the crew members of a Portland-based fishing vessel that sank off the coast of Massachusetts.

The Coast Guard said the Emmy Rose sank early Monday morning about 20 miles northeast of Provincetown, Massachusetts.

Oh my gosh. Yeah, it was nasty yesterday. Land lubbers (like me) have no clue what it's like to work on the seas. Commercial mariners are out there 24/7. Christmas, Thanksgiving, July 4th..... what a life. Thanks boys. And girls

Here's a pic of the Emmy Rose:

I figured it was a dragger. Is it possible that the Emmy was towing the net and the net caught onto a wreck on the bottom? Lord knows there's enough of them out there scattered about. Night time, boat on autopilot, mate on watch, everyone else asleep. Things can go badly in a very short time. Prayers for the crew and their families.

Something catastrophic must have happened very quickly since they could not get any type of a mayday call out. It is always heartbreaking to hear about these tragedies, and think about all of the family and friends that are impacted. Commercial fishing is such a difficult and dangerous job and I have such respect for the folks that do it.

EPIRP went off at 1am it was blowing 20kts nothing crazy for an 80ft trawler. The storm wasnt until later in the morning. It was their last trip before thanksgiving, and where supposed to be in Gloucester to unload Monday morning before the storm hit. I also heard some of the family members of the crew said they were doing some welding work because the boat was taking on water. Idk what happened but i agree want ever did happen, happened very quickly.
