I actually worked on that boat when I was 21 (17 years ago). That is unless Fishing Company of Alaska bought a new boat and called it the Ranger. I was shocked to hear the news this morning and I too feel for the people who didn't make it.

I get sick every time a story covers Dutch. Man I have stood on the stern of many boats up there and think that has to be the worst way to go. I wish the families all the best.

I am the sea Captain's (Peter Jacobsen's) daughter, Karen, from Massachusetts. I will miss him very much. The only compfort I have is knowing he is in heaven and at peace. I am sorry for the other families that lost their loved one as well.

I just have to say my heart goes out to all those that lives were lost and lost their loved ones. I just recently heard the news about this vessel and I got chills watching the story. The men who man these vessels are the bravest men I have ever seen. May they all rest in peace and may peace be with the ones who are grieving for their loved ones
