The indomitable bowsprite caught this distinctive red lightship entering the North River last month.  Great, but I was confused because a few days before I’d met a gentleman from LAMP who expressed frustration about the future of Lightship 112,  Nantucket.  It turns out a series of vessels have borne that name and two are afloat.

This one functions as a luxury charter.

An Adirondack River guide I met in North Cove the other day inquired about the “knob” on the bow.  Well . . . 3.5 tons of anchor.
