In March 1984, the fishing boat Wind Blown left Montauk Harbor on what should have been a routine offshore voyage. After a week at sea, the weather suddenly turned. Neither the boat nor the bodies of the men on board were ever recovered. The fate of the Wind Blown has become interwoven with local folklore. Amanda M. Fairbanks examines the reasons an event more than three decades old remains so vivid in people’s minds. The story is a universal tale about what happens when the dreams and ambitions of affluent and working-class families collide.
