New man on the boat

We have a new man on the boat. Over time I hope to get rid of the hat. Our new man in the mackerel and deep sea fishing business is Bob Fowler. He has been a very keen fisherman for many, many years and has now become a fully qualified Skipper.

Bob FowlerBob was born and raised in the Lyme Regis area and, after a spell in the army, he joined the ambulance service in 1981 working both frontline and in the emergency planning and major incident departments, looking after the specialist major incident vehicles. During his time in the ambulance service Bob delivered at least six babies. Bob has just retired from working for the NHS as a senior ambulance driver having done the job for more years than he will admit. Now he wants a complete change away from his previous life.

Bob has been fishing with Harry May Boat Trips for several years on his days off and we were very keen to have him when he asked for a job as it is quite noticeable how he goes out of his way to help people on the boat on Lyme Regis mackerel fishing or Lyme Regis deep sea fishing trips.

The new season is just about to start, Marie F. went in the water in Lyme Regis harbour towards the end of March after weeks of work done during the winter mainly by Bob. Sunbeam will be going in a few days later. Both boats have never looked so smart. Thank you Bob for a hard winter's work.
