The New Ocean Reporter

It was great to catch the new Ocean Reporter in rockport Harbor last week.

I wonder if there is a meaning of the penquin standing on the pilot house.

Or just a decoration.

Ocean Reporter Tribute

Joey,
Billy Lee from Rockport lost his faithful hand-built fishing boat of twenty-four years on the crazy ledge behind Straitsmouth Island last month while showing some folks from National Geographic a close up of the lighthouse there (a bit too close for the outgoing tide). His boat and gear eventually ended up in a scattered rubble on the ocean floor, but all hands were saved.
A few neighbors and friends recently assembled a lighted tree floating on a Zodiac in Coast Guard Cove as a tribute to his remarkable boat and this remarkable man.
