George Conk recently posted about Henry Hild, asking whether it was the last wooden workboat in the sixth boro.   I know of at least one, R. Ian Fletcher, shown below.  Fletcher has its own blog here.


What I recall from speaking with Captain John Lipscomb is that Fletcher began life on Delaware Bay as a patrol boat on commercial shellfish beds.

Anyone know of other wooden workboats?
