National Fisherman


A rescue pod, marked Foxy Lady II on the side, was discovered in a Saugus marsh Tuesday evening shortly before 5, around the same time the U.S. Coast Guard was calling off the night's search for the missing Gloucester-based scalloper and its crew of two.

Emergency responders recovered the hard-shelled lifeboat, which Saugus police believe may be tied to the Foxy Lady II, after receiving a call from a resident about a vessel in a waterway of the Saugus River, according to Saugus Lt. Ronald Giorgetti.

The Foxy Lady II, manned by Capt. Wally "Chubby" Gray Jr., 26, and Wayne Young, 50, both of Deer Isle, Maine, had set out for a day trip of fishing on Stellwagen Bank early Saturday morning and was to return Saturday evening. The captain's girlfriend reported the vessel overdue to the U.S. Coast Guard on Monday morning.
