Fishing boat smashed to pieces behind ‘Complex’


Fisherman Calvin Lampkin is now weighing the options open to him, after his fishing boat was destroyed during the passage of Hurricane Tomas.{{more}}

Lampkin’s Japanese long-liner, which he has owned since 1992, was smashed to bits on the rocks just outside the Administrative Building in Kingstown Harbour.

On Sunday morning, he told SEARCHLIGHT that the boat had been tied up at the Fish Market jetty, but the bow line burst.

“I lent my regular bow line to someone, who didn’t return it. He took it to Bequia and didn’t bring it back as promised. I was forced to use a thinner line to tie up my boat,” he said.

Lampkin, who is originally from Rose Hall, said that he has to accept what happened and will begin the recovery process from the bottom.

He is however happy about at least one thing, “Fortunately, I have no debts,” he stated.
