By Tom Crosier
May 18, 2018
I worked with Jim Duncan's son, Rick on the F/V Margaret Ann, catching Dungeness crab in the areas around Bell Island. We sent 1500 pounds of live crab a week to Seattle by Alaska Airline.
Mutual Fish company was a good buyer, they gave a good price and paid the air freight charge.
Rick was lost in a seine boat accident in Puget Sound, just outside Shilshole Marina. RIP, Rick!
