Andrea Gail BB726
The Andrea Gail was a commercial fishing vesselthat departed from Gloucester Harbour in Massachusetts on September 20, 1991 with six crew members on board. Andrea Gail and crew intended to make a fishing trip for swordfish in the area of the Grand Banks off Newfoundland, Canada. On October 6-7, 1991, the captain and crew started their return trip.
October 30th the vessel was reported overdue by its owner Mr. Robert Brown. An intensive air and sea search was conducted utilizing U.S. and Canadian Cape Cod MA. However the search did not locate the vessel or any of its crew members.
As of today, the vessel and crew members remain missing and are presumed lost at sea in a major storm. Referred to as the “perfect storm” by a meteorologist and made famous by Sebastian Junger’s book (later made into a movie). Crew members consisted of Captain William “Billy” Tyne, Robert “Bobby” Shatford, Dale Murphy, Michael “Bugsy” Moran, David “Sully” Sullivan and Alfred Pierre.
