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.

    Looking for Star of Bengal information

    Thank you

      I have some news articles in my files including one that has about a dozen of the names of the Officers and crew. Email me at and I can send them to you. I am currently on a project attempting to find all of the names of persons lost to Alaska Shipwrecks. The Star of Bengal is difficult because there were 110 Chinese Cannery Workers who were likely a majority of who was lost.

      What kind of information are you looking for. I just put together a list of names of both lost and survivors and will be updating the posting down the line. I have also populated the file with more news articles.
