I grew up in Winter Harbor and began lobstering when I was 12 years old, in 1962. I learned about lobstering from my father, Allison Workman. My grandfather, Milton Torrey, was also a lobsterman. I have 3 children, 6 grandchildren, and have been married for 40 years. I joined the Co-op in 1974 and have served on the Board of Directors.

I bought the boat I have now in 1992 and named it Tough Times because money was tight then and the interest rate was 15%. It just seemed to fit.

Meet The Captains

Every purchase you make with Winter Harbor Lobster Coop goes directly to the men and women who spend thier lives at sea catching the lobsters we all love so much. Thank you for supporting local independent fishermen and the communities they live in.
