Seine

The net is called the “seine” on a boat that is a seiner. Here is the jitney’s seine, in the back of Tom’s truck. After working on the skiff outboard all morning, launching the jitney, filling her tanks, standing up the mast and then dealing with my broken down car, he and I loaded the seine from the warehouse (where it is stored for the winter) to his truck. I am so tired that I can’t believe that I can type, and I didn’t do a quarter of the work he did! Tomorrow we will load the seine onto the jitney and mend it. I’ll try and get a photo for you.

The pretty house in the background is a B & B on our street, and that’s the bay that Tom will be fishing in come Monday morning at 6am. Please wish him luck for a good fishing season.
