Boats are ashore this time of year, high and dry since last fall prior to freeze-up of the bays and harbours around Prince Edward Island. They will soon be back in the water because lobster season starts next month.
The names of the boats have always fascinated me. There are those named after loved ones, like this beauty.
Or how about names of legend?
Some describe the process...
or the fisher's state of mind?
Whatever the name, the boats stand in wait, held in place by a simple but effective support system.
They stand through the blizzards and high winds, supported with two-by-four, ropes and wedges.
The exhaust pipe needed a hand.
And props to the barnacles!
