Fireside Chat with Capt. Roy

September 2, 2021 @ 8:30 pm – 8:00 pm
Fireside Chat with Capt. Roy


Capt. Roy Dagley, one of the South Shore’s most successful sea captains, will share compelling stories of his more than fifty years on the water, at Broad Cove Hall, Thursday, September 2, (7 – 8:30 p.m.).

Capt. Roy saw lots of changes over his years of fishing, from when his father finally agreed to take him lobster fishing on his sixth birthday, through rising through the ranks to become a highliner captain at National Sea. He also maintained a lobster fishing license until he retired in 2020.

Despite some close calls and tight spots, the 76-year-old Voglers Cove resident says, “I loved every minute of it.” As informal host, Eric Hustvedt will ask the occasional question and the evening will include lots of time for questions from the audience.

Tickets for the story-telling night are $10 each. Because of pandemic capacity restrictions, and social distancing requirements, only 28 tickets will be sold. Advance purchase recommended.   Call 677-2312 to purchase.

Proceeds from the “fireside chat” will go towards accessibility improvements at the vintage Broad Cove Hall, (7147 Hwy 331, Broad Cove.) Watch for more story-telling sessions to come later throughout the fall.

People interested in Roy’s early career might also like to see him featured in the 1966  National Film Board film, Trawler Fishermen, available on YouTube.
