I was a stern man for Sherm in the 1980 ties on the Jan 1, the first run of the season, having never lobster fished in the Atlantic in the winter before I asked Sherm, “What do I do if you get pulled overboard?”
His reply was, “Throw me the anchor, I’m only going to live sixty seconds before I die from hypothermia.”
