Interesting Boats In The Anchorage And Mooring Field

Every summer I make it a point to cruise though the general anchorage and mooring field a few times with my boat. If you are a fan of boats like me, there is always something new and interesting to see there. I visited the anchorage and mooring field today and took note of a few old girls there.

Not sure what this vessel is. I'm thinking she may be some sort of swordfish boat??

Not sure what she is but she looks pretty salty.
A nice double ender. I've seen her here before.
Red Head. I believe she's a River Queen boat.
A beautiful Hans Christian.

A nice American Tug. Note her dummy stack.
The big girls Med-moored at the east face of Straight Wharf.

Look Out!!! Hy-Line. Main channel.

Last winter I spent four days cutting a path through the thick brush deep in the eastern part of the island. It's a third of a mile long. At the end of the path, I set up one of my trail cams to document the deer in the area. I have had some really good results at that location. It's very private. The deer are not bothered or pressured in any way. I placed my new Bushnell trail cam in there all last week set to video. I was pleased to get this nice buck on video when I went in and checked the cam. I will be documenting him further with my cams. I'm interested to see what he looks like when he comes out of velvet. I think he has some potential.
