VANISHINGS: Loss Of The Andrea Gail

On October 27th, 1991, Hurricane Grace battered the entire Eastern Atlantic Seaboard.

Ninety five miles per hour winds drove massive swells onto shore. Hundreds of homes and businesses were damaged or destroyed. 400 miles offshore, a sword-fishing boat named the Andrea Gail was heading home with a hold full of fish.

She was about to be hit by the storm of the century; the mighty north-easter of 1991 when Hurricane Grace collided with a cold front from Canada and a storm from the Great Lakes.

Sometime in the middle of the night on October 28th, the Andrea Gail found herself at the center of that so-called 'Perfect Storm'. She was never seen again.
