Lobster boat crew recognized for rescue efforts

PROVINCETOWN — Coast Guard Station Provincetown officers said “thank you” Friday to lobster boat Capt. Beau Gribbin and his crew for their “swift, unselfish and courageous” help when the Twin Lights fishing boat capsized and sank Nov. 18.

The Twin Lights, which docked in Provincetown, is believed to have become snagged on another boat’s fishing gear at about 11:30 a.m. two miles north of Race Point Light.

As Capt. Jean Frottier, 69, of Wellfleet attempted to untangle his equipment, the 40-foot boat capsized and then went down, according to accounts from local fishermen at the scene.
