Dead Men Tapping

Dead Men Tapping is the true story about a commercial fishing boat that gets run over by a tug & barge off of Cape Ann, Mass, and the subsequent lawsuit against the Coast Guard for negligence in botching the rescue. One of the main characters in the book is Mike Goodridge of TowBoat/US Newburyport. The author threads the story of attempts to rescue three men trapped in the upside down fishing boat with scenes from the testimony of the court case.

I think this book should be required reading for every single C-PORT member. You will find a link to on the right side of the page to order this book.

You will not be disappointed.
