About captaingood

Captain Warren Good is the owner and administrator of this website and the author of the book ALASKA SHIPWRECKS. He spent much of the 1970’s, 1980’s and 1990’s involved in the fisheries of Alaska. His home base was Kodiak where he made himself available as a cook, deck boss, engineer or skipper. His fishing experiences ranged from Prince William Sound to Norton Sound working on boats out of Kodiak and Dutch Harbor. King crab, tanner crab, opilio crab, shrimp, pollock, cod, sole, halibut and salmon were a few of the fisheries Captain Good was involved in. He achieved his Inspected Master Captain’s License in 1988 from the United States Coast Guard. In the late 1970’s after losing several close friends to shipwrecks, Captain Good began researching other shipwrecks that had taken place along the vast coastal regions of Alaska. He has retired to Florida, but his Alaska Shipwreck research is ongoing. This site is a forum for that effort.

I was informed that I was the only survivor. Please help I can’t find anything .ship name Roughneck but not the smaller fishing boat

      The name of the vessel was Alaska Roughneck and she was lost February 28, 1979. According to the Seattle Times, there were two survivors, Bruce Campbell and Don Rude that were picked up by the Seven Seas and later evacuated to the hospital in Anchorage. I was fishing tanner crab on the Elizabeth F in the Bering Sea and remember when the Alaska Roughneck capsized near Bold Cape. Gene Love and Dan Buarnard were lost. I think I remember Gene from Kodiak if he was Lauri Love’s brother. Sorry for your loss. I have two news articles from the Seattle Times in my digital files. I can email them to you if you would like copies. We lost so many boats and fishermen during those boom years. At the time, it seemed wild, fun and prosperous but looking back there was a lot of sadness mixed in.
