  • Sean is a quit kid and because of that alot of lobstermen really dont know him. I had the pleasure to call him a friend, sean is a very , very , hard working kid who braves alot of shitty weather in that little boat to make a living. when i moved to AZ. I gave sean alot of lobster related things. traps , rope , bouy’s , repair wire , ect. to help him out . with the size operation sean has, he is not a highliner but he is a real Gloucester Lobsterman.
