Friend Of J.B. Fletcher.
Captain of his own fishing boat and local handyman around Cabot Cove. Quite often he could be seen in Jessica Fletcher's home fixing something.
A sidekick for Jessica during her Cabot Cove investigations, mostly driving her to various locations, he would occasionally -albeit inadvertantly- say something which would clue Jessica into unravelling the mystery.
In later seasons the character was replaced with Doctor Seth Hazlitt as sidekick and friend of Jessica.
