Fishing Boat On the Ways

I’ve done a lot of photography on Cape Ann. One of my favorite locations to shoot is the Gloucester Marine Railways, which refers to the huge sled-like machine that can pull a multi ton boat of the water. It is on the ways.

Which version do you like? Drop me a note at the bottom.

Today’s self assignment:

The Great Marsh is a long, continuous saltmarsh in eastern New England extending from Cape Ann in northeastern Massachusetts to the southeastern coast of New Hampshire. It includes roughly 20,000-30,000 acres of saltwater marsh, mudflats, islands, sandy beaches, dunes, rivers, and other water bodies.

Tugboat Tour

Share Button

In the early 1980’s I was a freelance shooter or “stringer” first for UPI and later for the Associated Press. Lacking hard-core experience as a photojournalist I had. to come up with most stories on my own. On occasion I would get paged to shoot a fire, a politician, or a grieving mother, but most of my shots they put out on the wire I researched and shot.

After repeated attempts to talk a fishing boat skipper into taking me out for half a day, I got the go-ahead from the captain of a tug in Boston harbor. In the 8 hours we spent motoring around the harbor the tug got only one call to assist a freighter enter the harbor. It was quite a show, with several tugs coordinating and communicating with coded “toots” from their whistles.

This deckhand maneuvered the massive “hawser” with great skill and strength. I believe this is the shot that ran as a “feature.”
