Cape Race was at Liberty Landing in Jersey City last Saturday and maybe still is. It’s a side trawler like the vessel Cape Sable I saw years ago in Lunenburg at the Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic. Cape Sable–click here–was Dutch built; here’s background for the type, but I’m still curious about Cape Race. Might it be this one in the ad? Great name. Filling up the diesel tank at current prices would cost about . . . $50k!

Notice Lower Manhattan in the background with the silvery 17 State Street.

Below is a slightly smaller stern trawler hauled out on Staten Island last winter.

And since we’re on fish, here’s an even smaller stern trawler anchored in the Merrimack River in Newburyport, Massachusetts, my old river.
