Our list of lost fishing vessels of the Pacific Graveyard is unparalleled, and as such, we just had no room to tell the individual stories of these boats that sank, instead listed simply as “to respect and remember” the neighbors, friends and family lost at sea.
Author Abigail Calkin, Ph. D. is writing a book based on the F/V Fargo, a 52-ft. trawler which sank in 1982.
Here is a link to her story hosted on Scroll In Space, the title is “Against the Net”.
Abigail’s contact information is as follows, and NW Limited…History in Vogue thanks her for permission to link to her story behind the date and name on our list that relates to the F/V Fargo.
