Captain Pete Mondello Shovels Off The Allison Carol
The boat had a little over a foot of snow aboard after the snow storm. There’s a whole set of precautions that commercial fishermen have to take to keep their boats going through the extreme cold temperatures. Frozen coolant lines, frozen lobster hoses, snow engines freezing up.
It’s always best to have a block heater which keeps the engine warm and the fuel from gelling up. We plug our truck in and it starts up (usually) pretty easily but without that block heater forgettabout it!
