    Sternman Kelsey Barker wore a T-shirt emblazoned with her son's name on the back as she went out to haul aboard Johnny McCarthy's True North on Sept. 7.

Sitting on Tanner's boat one afternoon, Scotty said he doesn't know what he wants to be when he grows up. "Maybe a policeman, maybe in the SWAT team," he mused. "Or maybe a hauler like Tanner, my daddy and my gramps."
