Karen Lynn 1

The little western rigged scalloper, Karen Lynn 1 from Boston, was here during the recent blow. I'm not sure what license she has but I'm thinking she's a day scalloper. Day boats are only allowed 400 pounds of shucked scallop meats per day. Here are a few pictures of the Karen Lynn 1 I took this afternoon-

Notice the net drum in her stern. She can be converted over to dragging as well as scalloping-

She tows one 8' or 9' dredge. Note the cutting house on her port side-

And note the second steering station. It looks as though there is a control for the winch as well. This makes it easier to run the boat if you are alone. She may have been a lobster boat in a former life.-

Beautiful sunrise down at the waterfront today. I arrived just as the sun was coming over the horizon-

The town clock-


A Cormorant silhouetted agains the early morning sky-

The Miss China resting on the calm and quiet harbor-

We are right in the middle of a non-spring. The wind will not stop blowing. Today, it was blowing a gale. Station Brant Point had the gale warning flags up all day-

Looking across the main channel. Note the two-masted sailboat holed up in the lee of First Bend-

A center console getting tossed around like a cork in the harbor-
