Based on a True Story

In 1991 the fishing boat Andrea Gail was lost at sea off the coast of Newfoundland with six crew members. Years later, Sebastian Junger wrote about the tragedy in The Perfect Storm, and in 2000 the story was released as a movie starring George Clooney and Mark Wahlberg. Hollywood took interest in the fishing port of Gloucester and its waterfront for a short while, but for residents who live in the city, the fishing trade has been a way of life for hundreds of years

That was the fate of the Andrea Gail. The boat had sailed from Gloucester September 20 with six men on board heading to big banks at the end of Newfoundland, Canada, with the aim of capturing sword fish.

I had the honor to visit  the Famous Crows Nest from The Perfect Storm! The pub is actually away from the lime light. They could have made so much money. They choose to honor the lost within their community. Pictures of the six that perished on the fishing trip are on the walls. Along with an autographed picture from all the stars from the movie.
