Summary

Incidents involving Shetland fishing boats.

Lenny Smith talks about life in his young days and what a struggle it was to make a living at inshore fishing. He tells of a disagreement that arose on a boat when the mist came down. Another time a Grimsby boat's crew got too drunk to row him ashore when he was delivering supplies, but they gave him fish and home bakes before he got home at 3 a.m. Another boat had to be towed off when it was high and dry.
