At sea with Eoin

“I couldn’t give this boat away” he says as we return from the last trip of the season. The paint is worn away in the familiar places hands rest in the wheelhouse, symbolic of his fondness for the Caroline. However the statement doesn't carry the romance it suggests; he honestly believes the boat and the commercial fishing license it carries is so burdened with regulation and expenses and the jobs in the mines so much more attractive, no one will ever take over at the wheel of the Caroline and Point Samson will no longer be a fishing village.
