“Bird-Dogs At Home…”


Our Bid-Dog boats have always interested me, and I have photographed and written about them before. However, I have not made a concerted effort to take a closer look at them, and  put together a suite/portfolio of them. So, yesterday I started on that task with the above photo. Since docking space is so limited around here, the vast majority of the boats spend their ‘non working hours’ parked in the owner’s yard, or some other convenient place, and thus are very much a part of our landscape. I hope to explore that visual aspect of it.

  1. I’m looking forward to more of the project..

  2. …I just checked out the Bird Dog Boat link in your post….Jeez, did I have a problem proving that I wasn’t a robot…the text would need an Enigma machine to decipher it…luckily I found a numbers option!

    • Hmmm – not quite sure what you ran into – perhaps I should delete the link. It looks to me like the photos are all of boats from here. And the thing he says about the transoms – they were not cut out till clam farming came along. For net-fishing they had ‘net-tables’ at the stern of the boats.
