Phyllis Ann, Mattituck

Unlike Stonington and Greenport, the commercial fishing fleet in Mattituck consists mostly of smaller, independent, fishing and lobster boats. Difficult to see from land, this fleet is only fully visible from a boat as you make your way along Mattituck Creek. In this photo, the crew of the Phyllis Ann unloads her lobster pots on an August afternoon. Map

Someone I know has a lobster crate serving as a table (for the couches) - and looks interesting (in a good way).

I think Pier 1 Imports or some other store used to sell reproductions to be used as coffee tables.
