1984 Andrea Denise

From the GEST Songs of NL site:

Crew members Randy Bursey of Caplin Cove and Roland Driscoll of Old Perlican were lost in the shipwreck of the Andrea Denise in September 1984. The three rescued crewmen were also from Old Perlican. ~ Thanks to Randy Bursey’s daughter Mandy for this information, 10/31/2010.

Caplin Cove is a small community on the north shore of Conception Bay. It is surrounded on the north by Low Point near the end of the Bay de Verde Peninsula, and on the south by Lower Island Cove. Caplin Cove was probably named for the large body of capelin in its waters. Known as Parlican at the end of the 16th-century, the name of this once largest fishing port in Trinity Bay was changed to Old Perlican in 1689. It is one of the oldest fishing communities in Newfoundland.
