During the recent blow, several draggers and one sea scalloper came in and tied up at the end of Straight Wharf. The sea scalloper was the Inspiration. I have never seen her here before. She’s a big steel highline boat. These guys don’t mess around. Everything is shipshape and in its place. Looks like she tows two 16-foot-wide dredges. I also noted that she has a bulbous bow. Look at where her winches are. Up high above the deck. And the captain has his own house in which he can control the winches while setting out and hauling back the dredges. All her windows are tinted. Here are some photos
