    Does this boat still exist? F/V The Catcher

    A friend of mine died years ago on the Nettie H. She was found in a life raft 8 months after the ship went down by the Catcher according to a news article. I am just trying to find some more information on this. The Nettie H went down in September 1993. Since it was so long ago it is difficult to find information. Just looking for closure.

    Thanks,
    Chris

    More information on this sinking...

    On September 13, 1993 the 58-foot crabbing vessel, F/V Nettie H, disappeared and has been declared missing. The vessel sent a distress call and gave their current position. After a 23,000 square mile search, no debris was located and the USCG called off their search. The crew of five, including three brothers, ages 35, 29, and 24, as well as a 35-year-old man and a 29-year-old woman, al experienced fishermen, are presumed drowned.

    Thanks. I have most of the public information from newspaper articles. Just trying to track down any other additional information. I know it was a long time ago. I just found about this earlier in the week so I am trying to sort things out.

    Thanks again.
