Breaking! Top “Wicked Tuna” Series Boat F/V Hard Merchandise sinks at the dock.
Captain Dave Marciano’s Hard Merchandise sank at the dock in East Gloucester. Details are unavailable at the moment. I would call him, but I’m sure he’s busy, and I’m certain his priority is his boat. There are updates on his Facebook page with much support from well wishers offering their assistance. The origional tip was from GoodMorningGloucester, the premier local blog. She is in the process of being raised.
Dave and his nephew, First Mate Jason Muenzner have become fan favorites. From the website:
We are one of Gloucester’s traditional, old school, commercial fishing vessels, working year round to feed the nation.
We are proud to be featured as part of the National Geographic Channel’s show “Wicked Tuna” . We think we are the wickedest tuna boat out there.
