Friends devastated by loss of fisherman
Fearless P-town scalloper emblematic of their lifestyle
Even at the age of 69, Capt. Jean Frottier never considered coming permanently ashore. The sea was his lifelong passion for him -- the physical challenges, the vastness, the quiet. This fisherman, retire? Unthinkable. Frottier, a lifelong fisherman known across Provincetown, is presumed dead after his vessel capsized Sunday 2.5 miles off the coast of Race Point. His body has not been recovered.
