Here is a view inside the Pilot House of The Sea Farmer II, Clark Sandler’s Gloucester Dragger. Clark was featured on After The Catch series with the skippers of the boats on The Deadliest Catch such as Sig Hansen, John Hillstrand and Phil Harris. Video will be forthcoming.
Here’s a picture from Kristin Michel of the Plum Cove School Playground project that the Sig Hansen fund raiser helped pay for. Soon the playground equipment will be installed and the kids will be able to enjoy it for years to come.
I couldn’t believe how gracious and unrattled he was in the face of so many people treating him like he was a rock star. In Gloucester, he is a Rock Star. He answered questions and then slipped outside to have a smoke and the throngs of people followed him wherever he went.
he rolled right along with it all with humor and humility. A real gentleman.
Here is the Northwestern, one of the top crab boats from the series The Deadliest Catch. You can check out the official website of the F/V Northwestern here-

Lenny at The Gloucester House put out a great spread for the event which raised money for the children of Plum Cove School.
A family atmosphere pervaded the room out back at The Gloucester House Restaurant.
He’s a lot shorter than I pictured.
Thank you to Kristen Michel for the photo.
It was a fantastic event.
The man was greeted with rock star status. Families got together and listened as Sig answered questions and shared laughs. When he went outside to smoke a cigarette, the throng followed him out and he graciously signed autographs, and took pictures with anyone that wanted one til every last person was happy. What a great guy, a regular guy, who took time and supported a cause for the children of Plum Cove School. Thanks Sig.
