The Fish Mongers

Pirates Cove Marina has a fish cleaning house and someone will clean your catch while you wait.
If you ever go to I mean, if you ever go someplace nice, a nice marina with beautiful fishing boats like these, there is a very good chance that they (the boats) were built within 25 miles of where I live. This sweeping bowline is a signature look of fishing boats built on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. At the peak of our last economic turn there were no less than 20 companies building custom yachts in and around Wanchese. Today there are 3. The assemblages of such qualified craftsmen in one place building boats at one time may never happen again.

I love all your boat pieces (the last is especially gorgeous!), Rick. I have always had a dream to live on a boat...
