‘An act of the devil’: Cold Water Cowboys’ boat washes ashore in storm

The fishing vessel, which made a name for itself on the Discovery Canada reality TV series Cold Water Cowboys, succumbed to the harsh winter seas of the North East Gulf when a storm struck the region on Dec 30.

Conway Caines, who witnessed the destruction of his boat after being alerted by a phone call, described such conditions in that area as an “anomaly.” He had never seen anything quite like that there before. “Everything lined up, I guess,” he told the Northern Pen. “There was a big tide surge.

Cold Water Cowboys star taking fame in stride

Although he’s taken some teasing from friends and occasionally gets recognized in public, Caines said his newfound notoriety isn’t likely to go to his head. “I’m me whether I’m happy or I’m mad,” Caines said with a smile Friday prior to a promotional appearance at Colemans at the Garden in Corner Brook. “If I got to go be somebody else for a TV show, then the TV show can leave.” Read more here  11:19
