Here's a video from the 2009 International Dory Races in which Jimmy won two races.

The part with Jimmy T starts at 5 mins 11 seconds where he proclaims himself the greatest grand banks dory rower of all time!-

We here at Good Morning Gloucester helped to get Jimmy T voted to be America's pick to go on the show.

I've known Jimmy since I was a little kid offloading fishing boats at our dock here in Gloucester Ma that he used to fish on.

I have a ton of pictures and videos featuring Jimmy from the international dory races as well as when Jimmy came down the dock to ask people to vote to get him on the show-

Here is a picture I took of Jimmy as a race director of the International Dory Races-

In this video Jimmy wasn't his usual joking self as at this point he was a bundle of nerves knowing there was a chance he could be selected to be on the Survivor cast and he came down the dock early in the morning to ask people to vote

If you want to look through all the pictures and videos on Good Morning Gloucester with Jimmy You can see tthree or four pages worth of posts here-

Thanks Capt Joe!  What fun to have a friend and neighbor to watch on the show!

And good job to Gloucester for pulling together and voting to get Jimmy chosen as America's contestant choice!

Wow, first the TAR Kick-off, then Jeff with ATWFF and now Jimmy T.!  Gloucester is sure well represented on CBS this year. It's definitely well- deserved too.  I haven't been there in years, but it's beautiful and I remember the locals being the best.  Jimmy seems like a great dude, hope he sticks around for awhile.
