“It sounds so nostalgic, but there’s no question that when I first went fishing, I knew I was born to fish,” said Capt. Beau Gribbin, the owner and skipper of the 45-foot Helltown, built in 2001 at Mount Desert Island Boatworks in Maine. His father, Andy Gribbin, was a scalloper and draggerman; his stepfather, Carl Tasha, was a lobsterman with his brother, Paul Tasha. After a few years on the Bering Sea, Gribbin returned to Cape Cod in the 1990s and owned Poor Boy, the first Glutton (ex-Christina Marie), Glutton II (ex-Sea Otter, now Sisters Five) and Rogue (ex-Esther’s Pride), before purchasing the current Glutton (ex-Misty Marie) and then Helltown.
