Door pulled the trapped seal aboard near Matinicus Rock and Willey cut the rope around it to free the creature.

As Willey and his sternman, Jeffrey Door, 36, of Union, approached, they saw it was the head of a young seal, according to Krystal Gamage, Willey's girlfriend.

"There you go, buddy", Willey said before he lowered the seal into the water.
