The ferry Islander, my favorite boat of all time.

Even though not sleek or graceful, for 57 years the Islander brought her own special beauty to the waters surrounding Martha’s Vineyard. The Islander will continue to exist through paintings, photographs and in the memories of those who loved her.

The beloved work horse of a ferry, the Islander plied the waters between Woods Hole and Martha’s Vineyard for 57 years before retiring in the winter of 2007. There was just something about this tub of a boat that endeared her to all who sailed on her… she wasn’t a great beauty but there was something regal about her.

I'm married, I have two daughters and two grandchildren and they all love MV. Enjoy my MV blog and contact me if I can answer any questions. This blog started out as strictly about Martha's Vineyard but over the years I've branched out to include other obsessions and interests. I enjoy photography and like sharing my photos here as well. Hope you enjoy :)
