Thread Name: Help: Mary Ellen Carter? What kind of boat?
Subject: RE: Help: Mary Ellen Carter? What kind of boat?
From the size of the crew, the name and the value "She's worth a quarter million, sittin at the Dock." I pictured a small trawler like the hundreds I saw growing up in Newfoundland. But obviously those other descriptions would fit. I prefer to have it unspecified and picture my own boat. I don't think it was based upon a real incident was it? I always thought the story would make a good movie.
