Then and Now…

Diana and her sister wrestling a large and very heavy bag of clams onto their bird-dog in 2004. Diana’s boat was one of the earler ones to adopt the cut-out transom which made it far easier to get the clams on board. Still the bag of clams, when wet and muddy weighed far in excess of 100 lbs.

Here are Wesley, Jeffrey, and Brett in 2016, winching a bag with far fewer clams, and thus quite a bit lighter aboard their boat. While it is still a bird-dog, the boat is considerably larger than the one in the photo above.
