Sorry for the horribly lit photo, but to demonstrate what is going on inside, here is the horseshoe bar area at the new restaurant going in at Cruiseport Gloucester. Once the bartop is on it will take better shape.

Western Venture Net Loading

Here’s a picture left from the other day when the Western Venture was loading it’s net from the Swan Net Boom Truck.

What is interesting about it is how high it sits out of the water so that the opening in the stern of the boat is perfectly lined up with the level of the pier so the net slides right into the stern of the boat and onto it’s net reel in a straight shot.  Do you see those two rectangular openings in the stern of the boat that look like garage door openings?  Just inside there is where the net reels are located.

Rocky’s Rat Poop

You just knew I had to capture this image didn’t you?   To see the subtle nuances of the rat poop you can click the picture and select “all sizes” to see a large sized version with greater clarity.

I think it makes a great background image for your computer screen, don’t you?  To set an image as a background image for your computer screen, just open it to the larger size and then right click with your mouse on the image.  It should give you the option to use as background image.  Voila!  Now you have a rat poop background for your computer!

I know, I know- I’m a river unto my faithful readers.

Wire Fishing Cable Used To Tow Nets

The cable wire is actually a bunch of smaller wires braided together to give it incredible strength.  There’s something beautiful about this stuff up close that I never see as beautiful when it’s just sitting around the dock.

Wire Fishing Cable Used To Tow Nets

This is a spool of wire.  The wire that draggers use to haul in their nets.  If you remember the picture from two days ago aboard The Patriot, this is the type of wire that goes onto winches.
