A little fishing boat

Was just out sailing; Nice trip with Daniel around the Blake Sea SE areas. When we came back I noticed this little fishing boat. Nicely moored on the west pier:

I don't think I ever saw it before. In fact fishing boats are rare in SL. It's probably because there's not a lot to catch. We do have fish though. Usually they're found around diving spots, so they aren't really meant to be caught... Anyway, the builder is pretty well known. It's Carbon Philter. I wonder if the smoke coming out of the excaust has been well filtered... Check it out while it is still moored at Tradewinds YC.


  1. It is a lovely little commercial vessel but, it is not a fishing boat. It's a small cargo boat of the type that used to ply the inter-island waters in the north west of Scotland and was locally known as a "Puffer" I used to see one of the last ones, manned by two men and a dog, when it called in to the port of Ayr. Many, many years ago.

    1. Oh, I see. Thanx Ahab. I was kinda looking for fishing gear and couldn't really see any. The hull looks rather much like a classic fishing boat though, so I assumed...
