A Life In Boats
When I was a kid, almost every boat was built of wood, and rowing was how you got out to your mooring. Now inflatables have replaced just about every oar-powered pram, dinghy and dory.
In our family, the progression for young boaters was clear and unvarying for seven children: learn to swim before you could row, learn to row before you could sail, learn to sail before you could use a powerboat.
Our trio of fishing writers brings you the spring and early-summer forecast for their local waters:
May is a tricky month for fishing in New England — tricky in large part because it marks the beginning of real “in-season” fishing for a variety of species over a major geographic sprawl, and tricky because everything is in flux, somewhere between winter grounds and the first places we know to go looking.
