Background
Captain Louis “Eddie” Dykes began his professional career as a first mate on the original Shamrock back in 1967 when he worked for his grandfather. A couple of years later, his father took the helm. Eddie went on working as his first mate until he eventually became the captain. The family purchased the Shamrock II only a decade after that. The boat's history begins in 1980 when Eddie became her captain. The rest is history!
