Greenport Fishing Fleet

As I have noted in other posts, there are not too many commercial fishing fleets left in this region. The few that remain have become smaller and smaller. Greenport still maintains a fleet with a dock that is accessible from the center of the village. I took these photos from a small park located behind the train station.
Greenport has a busy waterfront. Along with the recreational boats, there are ferries, excursion boats, and fishing boats coming and going at a steady rate.
The Mt Vernon (blue hull) I recognize from another port. I will have to look through my photos of Stonington, Pt Judith, and New Bedford to find where I have seen her before.
