And with that, Ivan left to check the engine room and try to wedge himself into his bunk or at the galley table to endure the next thirty minutes until he would make the rounds again. I steered the Hannah Boden, holding the wheel with both hands to prevent myself from being tossed around the bridge like Raggedy Ann on a possessed trampoline. And all the long while, I tried to convince myself that the worst was surely over, and be thankful that it was dark. If I had been able to see the weather, I thought I might possibly panic.

I thought out loud, “Even if the storm does exactly what the weather gurus say, I should have time to reach my destination and set this gear out before the weather’s upon us. Then who cares how hard it blows? We’ve ridden out worse. Besides, if we go in, I stand the chance of losing part or all of the crew in a barroom. The weather people are always so dramatic. ” And with that sort of reasoning, I decided to remain on course and finish shifting this first load of traps. That evening it was evident that the weather people had indeed been mistaken in their predictions concerning the storm’s speed and intensity.

Bigger boats with more crew members work weeklong trips in and around the “canyons,” where the continental shelf drops off to deep water, as opposed to working the shoal water around the shore where I presently fish a 35-footer with my father. The weather was perfect for shifting gear (moving traps from one area to another): flat-calm and clear. And the forecast held nothing to make me nervous about loading the Hannah Boden to her maximum capacity. The crew and I had been hoping to wait to move the 1,400 lobster traps until May, when we would have been happy to take them ashore and rig the boat for our preferred vocation—longlining swordfish.
