Moments: Annisquam Fish Centennial

Since 1920, the Annisquam Fish, a one-design catboat, has been built in a boatyard on Ferry Street, first by Nick Montgomery and his family, and now by Jeff King and his. There were several hundred of these 15-foot wooden boats built in the last century, and Jeff is still building them out of wood and caring for the fleet. Brightly painted, they make quite a sight, lined up on the trawl line at the AYC or playing around in the bay or the Jones River.
