60 By the Dart • Dartmouth at Work


the very best and worst of Mother Nature and what she’s capable of. You know the dangers but try not to think about them. I’ve known 10 fishermen who’ve lost their lives. You just wake up each morning hoping it won’t be your turn.


Do you get hurt? Yes, most weeks! I remember crab pot coiling systems where men would lose fingers - sometimes whole arms, but the equipment is a lot safer now. I’ve had my fair share of injuries, you have to treat them yourself when at sea for days on end - stitching up your own wounds! Once I knelt on a hermit crab which split my knee open, I sewed it up too tight and couldn’t bend my knee!


You used to spend a long time at sea then? When I was young and had no commitments I would go out with shellfish crews for 10 days, 18 hours a day. You’d pull up at Cherbourg, offload your catch, have a bit of dinner, a glass of wine and head


straight back onto the boat at mid- night. I couldn’t do that now!


You come from a watery family don’t you? My granddad was Dartmouth har- bour master for nearly 40 years, my old man was a pilot on the river for 26. My two brothers are skippers of fishing boats. My mum used to have the pick of the sea for dinner!

share of injuries, you have to treat them yourself when at sea for days on end - stitching up your own wounds!


We can’t not mention the tattoos! You must have over 20 - why so many? I had my first one aged 15 and haven’t stopped, it’s an addiction.


Each one has a story. I have ‘Made in Dartmouth’ on my tummy, I’ve got an image of my wife on my arm, there’s a compass - as we can’t lose our way at sea and an East India Trading Company logo as my grand- dad worked for them. I’m about to get a new one of the Daymark.


How often do you get called a pirate!? A lot! I never crafted the look - it just kind of evolved. It’s a bit scary for some - I notice elderly ladies grasping their bag a bit tighter as I walk by!


So what fish do you like to see on your dish? None - I’m allergic to all fish! If I eat it my eyes stream and my fingers go all funny.


What’s it like living in Blackawton? It’s pretty and peaceful out here - but a long way from the sea. My wife let me build my own harbour side in the garden with boat rings, ropes and a cannon to make me feel nearer to the water!
