Karen work's as Orient Star IV's Administrator of Web Design, Content & Advertising, Accountant, Staff Photographer and Assistant Deckhand. From Winter through Fall she can be spotted working a sander or paintbrush in the marina yard, cleaning the cabin & heads, or prepping meals for the Captain between charters. On a really good day, she is accompanying the Captain on charter. On a great day, she is fishing at the rail. Still honing her fishing skills, she has no plans to become a Mate or Captain. Right now she is perfectly content as wife and mother, playing a supporting role to the legacy of an Irish fishing family and bearing witness to the next generation of Captains and Mates- and she couldn't be prouder.
