Back in December 2013 I did this post . . .  Recently I had a short time back in one of my old digs . . . Haverhill MA and stopped briefly to walk along the Merrimack River.

When I lived there 20 years ago, access to the water existed, but not like this arrangement.

But what really intrigued me was the repurposed USCG 40′ utility boat, my all-time favorite design.  See the whole evolution of the design here.

This one is very nicely restored and kept.

If I understand this right, the Slavit family offers free tours on this 1959 vessel.   But there are issues . . .

All photos, WVD, who was thrilled to see this restoration on the Merrimack, where I used to kayak and once had the good fortune to take a tour with the Merrimack’s legendary “Red” Slavit.  Red would explicitly say he new quite a bit about the river, and what he didn’t know he just made up, to be  more interesting.
