Smith Cove Fleet, circa 1960

Smith Cove in East Gloucester was, and still is, populated by both fishing and pleasure boats. In the background of the photo is East Main Street, with Banner Hill rising above it. The boats, from left to right: Harpoon sword fishing boat "Jaguar" (previously named Lord Jim and also a WWII submarine chaser), owned by Dr. Fred Breed; "Jumping Jennifer," Tom Morse's fishing boat; Party fishing boat "Winner III," owned by Bobby Anderson; and the "Naomi Bruce III," co-owned by Cy Tysver and the Shoares family. Vessel histories are complex, and all comments and corrections are welcome.

Strange Jelly Fish from Bill Trefry

Joey,

This morning in Smith Cove a very strange jelly fish was found attached to a piling. It is about 4.5ft in length and very sparkly reddish maroon. This jelly fish is also rather thick. It looks like a scarf hanging from the piling. Anyone else see these around?  Thanks, Bill Trefry
