"Ten Hours Until Dawn" - Saturday, January 6th at 3:00 PM

Newspaper columnist Michael Tougias will recount from his book the details surrounding one of the most daring sea rescue attempts in recent history. During the height of the Blizzard of 1978, the pilot boat Can Do, with five men on board, set out from Gloucester to assist a lost Coast Guard boat and an oil tanker in a mayday situation. Find out what happened on that awful night when seas became skyscrapers and 100 mile per hour winds battered New England. An electrifying true tale of a blinding storm, a crew in peril at sea, and the men who risked their lives to save them.

Presenting actual radio communications of the boats in distress, Tougias tells the story of who survived, and who did not and why.
