February 2007, almost exactly 7 years ago was the last time I sailed on the Islander..
Even though not sleek or graceful, for 57 years the Islander brought her own special beauty to the waters surrounding the Vineyard. The Islander will continue to exist through paintings, photographs and in the memories of those who loved her. There was just “something” about her.
Early morning …
It was said she was going to be dismantled for scrap metal… I don’t think I want to know if that’s what happened to her or not… I’d rather remember her as a beautiful tub of a ferry 🙂
