Gull’s Eye View

Hang out in a Maine harbor long enough, and you’ll quickly learn that each boat is an extension of the man or woman at the helm. It’s customized just the right way to meet their needs, no detail goes overlooked. These fisherman depend on their vessels for their livelihood. Often, they will spend more time with them than their own family.

Examining these boats from the air, you witness minute changes across hundreds of different designs. Each boat tailored to fish the waters along a specific section of Maine’s rocky coast. From 15 foot skiffs to 25 foot off-shore haulers, these vessels reflect their owners, home harbors, and a life spent harvesting the cold waters of the Gulf of Maine.
