Vessel Details


Gerald Bishop attempted to reach a drag on the scalloper Jerry & Jimmy as it was swung over the side, but he lost his grasp when the ship rolled, and he was pinned between the vessel and the drag as the latter swung back. He fell into the sea and sank before a dory could reach him. The dragger Bobby & Harvey joined the crew in an unsuccessful six-hour search for Mr. Bishop.
