Storm

video

I shot the above video during the height of the storm this afternoon. The big steel dragger is tied to the end of the Town Pier. She was getting tossed around like a cork. I'm thinking it was blowing at least 70 mph at that point.

Here are a few more pictures I took. Sorry there are not more but it was just too nasty out to take pictures today.

Commercial Scalloping. Day Two

It was another beautiful day out on the water today. Light winds and cool. The scallops were jumping into my boat. Everyone was all smiles catching their limit of scallops in record time. Here are a few shots I grabbed this morning-

Opening Day Of Commercial Scallop Season

Commercial bay scallop season started at 6:30 this morning. It was a nice morning out on the water. Calm wind, sunshine and warm. I took my brother Richard along with me. We got my 5 bushel limit in no time and we were back at the dock unloading at 8:30am.

Here are a few scenes from this morning-

Toscana's Barge and tug were here the other day. They were loading containers on the barge. Not sure what was in the containers. Captain Tim Reinemo is running the tug for Toscana. He told me that it takes 12 hours to go from here to New Beige towing a loaded barge.




The guys are splashing their scallop boats and getting ready for the start of the commercial scallop season which begins this thursday.



The wreck of the Sargent still at Monomoy and still posing a severe threat to navigation. This is going on 4 years now that it has been there. The Shearwater is in the background.


I spotted this nice 28 Parker in the Boat Basin this past weekend. A couple of local guys own her.
