Captain Lou's Nautical News Headlines
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WKS-bGcoZW4

Produced in 1936, this wonderful old film shows a voyage aboard a schooner named Wanderbird around South America. The captain of this vessel is Warwick M. Tompkins of Gloucester, Massachusetts, who later wrote a book about the journey entitled "50 South to 50 South". For decades, the book has inspired many to seek out their own nautical adventures.

CAPT LOU’S NAUTICAL NEWS 11/20/16

BODY OF KAYAKER FOUND IN HULL
Saturday morning, a person walking the beach near Hull High School noticed what appeared to be a body in the water and called police. Police and the Hull Fire Department responded and brought the body to shore. Officials believe the man was a kayaker, as he was found near an empty kayak. The state medical examiner's office and state police detectives, including the Crime Prevention and Control Unit, also responded to the scene, but no foul play is suspected. They are trying to determine cause of death and whether it was an accidental drowning or a medical condition. The Coast Guard said they had not received any reports of a missing kayaker. The Plymouth County District Attorney's Office identified the victim as Douglas King, 51, of Weymouth.
WIND SURFER STRANDED ON ROCKS
In Rhode Island, a Coast Guard crewman had to go in the water to rescue a female windsurfer stranded on the jetty's rocks. The rocks made it impossible for the crew on the Coast Guard boat to get close to her, so a Coast Guard boat crewman jumped into the water and swam to the stranded windsurfer, safely bringing her back to the Coast Guard boat. The Coast Guard coxswain on the rescue boat said he knew they had to act quickly because she was most likely hypothermic. He said with our knowledge, experience, and training we were able to get her safely to our boat and transfer her care to emergency services personnel waiting on shore. The woman is reported to be in good condition.
SEAFOOD HARVESTERS OF AMERICA CALL ON TRUMP
The Seafood Harvesters of America have called on President-elect Donald Trump to abide by existing laws that require science-based fisheries management, including the Magnuson-Stevens Act. The organization represents U.S. fishermen and seeks to protect commercial fishing interests and create and maintain accountability in fisheries management. The group called on Trump to respect and work on behalf of the commercial fishing industry, which it said employs more than 187,000 Americans working at tens of thousands of businesses, and providing $14.8 billion in economic output. Seafood Harvesters also called on the recreational fishing community to work with them to improve fisheries sustainability and management. Let's not have any more divide and conquer attitudes.
FISHERMEN WANT REVERSAL OF UNDERWATER MONUMENT AREA
Closer to home, the Fishermen's Alliance is working hard alongside local fishermen to push for a buffer zone of at least 50 miles off the backside of Cape Cod. No industrial herring trawlers would be allowed to fish inside the buffer zone. However, they could still fish farther offshore beyond the buffer zone. The purpose of the buffer zone would be to protect Cape Cod inshore fish populations and to help the small-boat fishing industry which can't go as far offshore as the big trawlers. Herring are also a key source of food for whales and fish like tuna, stripers, cod, haddock, and dogfish. Current regulations allow for the trawlers to fish beyond three miles from shore from Provincetown past the Islands. A vessel tracking program showed about a half dozen trawlers three or four miles off the Coast of Orleans and Eastham along the back side of the Cape earlier this week.
NOAA ANNOUNCES PEER REVIEW OF STOCK ASSESSMENTS
And NOAA said a panel of stock assessment experts will peer review assessments of black sea bass and witch flounder stocks found off the Northeastern U.S. in a four-day meeting November 29th thru December 2nd at NOAA's Northeast Fisheries Science Center in Woods Hole. Working groups of federal, state, and academic scientists have been developing the assessments over the past year. The peer reviewers will determine if their work is adequate for use in making fishery management decisions. Black sea bass is a reef fish and are treated as a single stock for fish occurring in waters from Cape Hatteras to the southern Gulf of Maine. The witch flounder is a North Atlantic deep-water flatfish harvested by the commercial fishery and found mostly in the Gulf of Maine-Georges Bank area.
STATION POINT ALLERTON WINS BEST GALLEY AWARD
Coast Guard Chief Petty Officer Peter Lewis has just the right recipe for keeping the 45-person crew at Station Point Allerton happy, healthy, and well-fed. he tries to maintain a good balance of crew menu favorites along with a staple of high-nutrition meals to help keep his shipmates ready for the long hours and demanding tasks of the lifesaving profession. He has made the Point Allerton station's galley into an award-winning Coast Guard galley. The galley at Station Point Allerton was recently named winner of the Coast Guard’s Forrest E. Rednour Award for Excellence in Dining – the fourth consecutive year that the Hull galley has been so honored in the competition among all Coast Guard small shore stations. Petty Officer Lewis Lewis has been in charge of the Point Allerton galley since 2014.
PRESIDENTIAL YACHT SEQUOIA SOLD AGAIN
And last on today’s nautical news, an investment group that lent money to the owners of the Sequoia, the last U.S. presidential yacht, was just awarded its title by a Delaware judge. Although the Sequoia is listed as a national historic landmark, it has become a “home for raccoons” as it sits in dry dock at a shipyard in Deltaville, Virginia. Presidents from Herbert Hoover to Jimmy Carter entertained dignitaries and diplomats on board the 104-foot wooden yacht until Carter sold it at auction in 1977 for $286,000. It changed hands several times, and one time was used as a charter boat on the Potomac River. An attorney said the new owners are committed to restoring and preserving the Sequoia in cooperation with the Coast Guard so that future generations of Americans will be able to enjoy its storied past.
