Alaska Shipwrecks

Alaska Shipwrecks is a work in progress.  In time it will include a review of all losses of life and vessels in and near the navigable waters of Alaska.  It is a preview of an Encyclopedia of Alaska Shiprecks I will publish in the future.  I dedicate this site to the memory of my many friends and acquaintances lost in and around the Alaska Commercial Fishing Industry who left port and never returned.  If you knew someone who was lost please remember them by posting at the end of the page where their loss is noted.  Thank you all who visit this Alaska Shipwrecks site.  Please respect copyrights.  Warren Good

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.

      Thanks Penni, You have been very helpful already. I have a long way to go with just the first draft of this effort. I have been at it for 25 years now. Al Drabek used to look over my shoulder back in the 1980’s and just shake his head. I think he would be amazed at what this is becoming. I had hoped he would be down here helping. Thanks for your input. Warren (Pogo) Good
