After yesterday taking a group of 70 veterans and their invited guests on a fishing trip aboard Captain Tom Orrell’s Yankee Freedom, Captain Dave and Nancy went fishing today with a ship full of local fishermen and fans.
No greater fan than Michael, who was waiting far ahead of the scheduled departure for an autograph from Captain Dave. Autograph in hand, just look at that ear to ear grin!

In honor of our American military veterans and Independence Day, Wicked Tuna’s Captain Dave and Nancy Marciano are hosting a group of veterans aboard the Yankee Freedom. Captain Dave first began working with the Wounded Warrior Project about four years ago. He usually treats small groups throughout the season but his year has been incredibly busy for the Marciano’s and he needed a larger boat to bring out a larger group of vets.

Captain Dave naturally turned to Captain Tom Orrell, from where he began his fishing career. Capt. Orrell owns and operates Yankee Fleet Fishing. Orrell was all on board with the idea and has donated his largest ship, the Yankee Freedom. Jim Destino donated lunch and Mayor Romeo Theken and the City helped organize gift bags.

Lobster boats, dories, reflections off the water, symmetry, repetition, Gloucester at dawn, Rocky Neck In the background, Cape Pond Ice, the inner working harbor, there’s really not much this one is missing.
Available as an 8×10, 16×20 prints or 16x 20 canvas print which I think just make the reflections and colors pop in a painterly way (the Canvas wraps also don’t require framing).
