Sounds like a great read. I'll be sure to check it out. Nothing like a little mooncussin'. Thanks for the suggestion, Walter.

Don't miss Joseph Mitchell's 1947 short story "Dragger Captain," first published in the The New Yorker and re-published in several collections since, including "Up in the Old Hotel" from 1992. It's based on Mitchell's interviews with the Stonington, Connecticut draggerman Ellery Thompson. Mitchell closes the story with two fishermen recounting tall tales of Block Islanders and their propensity for scavenging "wracks."
