A Rockland man has been identified by his family as one of two lobstermen who were lost at sea after their fishing boat sank off Matinicus Island on Saturday morning.

An obituary was published Thursday in several midcoast newspapers, including the PenBay Pilot and the Boothbay Register, saying that Tomas I. Hammond, 27, was lost at sea while fishing aboard No Limits, a 45-foot lobster boat based in Cushing.

The obituary said that Hammond, formerly of Damariscove Island in Boothbay Harbor, is survived by his wife, a 5-year-old son, his parents, two brothers and four sisters.

The Coast Guard, which responded to the distress call, has refused to identify either of the crewmen, who were lost and presumed dead.

No Limits’ captain, Christopher Hutchinson, 26, was rescued by the Coast Guard. Hutchison was found in a life raft after he set off a flare. The Coast Guard conducted a search for Hammond and the other crewman over an area of 130 nautical square miles.

The search was suspended Sunday night during the height of the weekend snowstorm that pushed waves to heights of 22 feet.
