Scott E. McDowell

The F/V Albatross & Her Crew

Fifty years of floundering in Cape Cod Bay


Scott E. McDowell– the first of 100 Albatross Mates


The Albatross has taken families flounder fishing in Cape Cod Bay for over fifty years. One-hundred local boys and girls have worked as Deck Hands under the two owners of the boat – Scott was the first in 1965. Great stories are shared, as well as a picture guide of over twenty local fish species is provided. Lessons Learned on the Albatross have led many Deck Hands to select careers in Defense Agencies, maritime commerce, oceanography, medicine and public service.
