The Andrea Gail is a sword fishing boat out of Gloucester, Massachusetts. Billy Tyne is her captain, down-on-his-luck from a recent losing streak, looking to bring back one big score so he and his crew will have the money to stay ashore during the coming winter. So out they go, and they hit it big, hauling in what the crew estimates is a quarter-million-dollars worth of fish. Unfortunately, they haven't paid attention to the weather forecasts or the radio, and the boat is right in the path of what will become one of the most terrifying and fantastic storms of the century. The always-beating heart of the adventure are the men (and women) who go down to the sea in ships and are oft-times lost at sea, doing battle with the unpredictable, sometimes vicious forces of Nature. Based on a true story, and dedicated to the ten thousand Gloucestermen who have died at sea since 1623
