When the distinctive white-tipped orange mast of the fishing vessel Little Sandra slipped below the ocean’s surface 18 miles off the coast of Rockport beyond Thacher Island this past weekend, the intentional sinking marked more than just the end of the line for the 63-foot-long vessel.

It was the end of an era for Gloucester’s historic fleet of eastern-rigged trawlers as well.

  1. Paul,

    Very sad day indeed – but will live on and be a home for the seas fish and other’s that once supplied her! Guess you can say full circle! That was what you would watch for them going out and coming in followed by the seagulls. 😦 Dave
