How do fishermen get to their fishing boats? They usually have small boats with outboard motors to do this. In larger harbors, there may be a small marina or pier float where these small boats can be tied and accessed during the season.


In smaller harbors, such as our Naskeag Harbor here, the fishermen bring their boats to the beach on truck-drawn trailers, back them into the water, and park the trailers on the beach and in nearby parking areas for the day,


Most tourist books don’t show our harbors quaintly adorned with their pickup trucks.
