Captain Rob took this photo of my boat tied up to the Community Store dock.
I have been having some problems with the outboard motor (it is almost 20 years old) so yesterday I pulled the boat out of the water to work on the motor. If you are on the island in the next few days you will likely see my boat on the lot next to Spencer's Market. But as soon as I get the motor working right I will be taking her out clamming.
Once she's back in the water, if you happen to walk down the Community Store dock stop briefly to admire my father's craftsmanship.
