July 14

Took a ride out to Hither Crick early this morning. Always something going on out there.

These baby ducks were the size of bumble bees!

Captain Carl Sjolund, his son, Jimmy and Tom Montgomery heading over to Tuckernuck.

I'm not a big ragboat fan but this one caught my eye today. She's moored up in East Polpis Harbor. Beautiful boat. Does anyone know what kind she is?

The Boat Basin is starting to fill up again. Here's a bow on shot of a big yacht at Straight Wharf.

And here are the big boys Med-moored at the east face of Straight Wharf.

In the event of a hurricane and you are not able to haul out your boat and have it safely on the hard, this is an excellent place to hole up. I remember years ago, Jim Gross put his old wooden inboard scallop boat, Gale Winds, in here during a hurricane.

I was in there today in my boat and wondered what the raft was used for. Anyone know?

Commercial Striped Bass Season

Commercial striped bass season started today. I drove out to Squidnet early this morning to grab a shot of the fleet but was met with a wall of pea soup fog. I'll try some other day.

Click on the title of this blog entry to view the percent of bass landed so far.

F/V "Pedlar." I've always liked her lines.

UH-OH!!!!!! A dog on a public beach! We can't have that!! Actually, this little dog was better behaved than most of the adults and kids at this beach.

Next thing you know, the Town of Nantucket will ban all dogs from boats.
