Here's a picture of my grandfather, Capt. John A. Dahlmer standing before the pilot house and surveying his newly-launched 110' Dragger, "Superior" in 1932. She was launched in Essex, Ma and her keel was laid by famous shipbuilder Arthur D. Story. Superior and Capt. Dahlmer enjoyed a long reign as a hi-liner in the Gloucester fishing fleet - primarilly seining for Mackerel and dragging for Redfish on Newfoundland's Grand Banks. My uncles, Ronald, Eber, John and George Dahlmer shared the captains' duties with my grandfather until his retirement. Superior served in the US Navy from 1942-1944 during WW-II ferrying gasoline and supplies to weather stations on the Newfoundland and Greenland coasts.
She was returned to the family in 1944 and was sold shortly thereafter. Captains Ronald & George Dahlmer spent a year ferrying war surplus navy minesweepers to the Shrimp Fishery in Texas and Louisiana. Both sailed as skippers of shrimpers out of Brownsville, Tx and retired there as boatowners.
