West Island Lobster Boat rides out the storm Add Video

A Nova Scotia style lobster boat rides out the strong southeasterly gales., south of the Causeway to West Island. Winds have gusted to 56 MPH. Video by Mark L. Baron Jr. For more details of this storm and live updates visit www.westislandweather.com NOTE:These classic Nova Scotia style lobster boats are higher in the bow than a Maine style vessel , a common sight along the New England coast. These rugged boats are designed to brave the harsh conditions that may be encountered. They have a fully flared bow to punch into head seas, rounded bilges for load carrying ability and a graceful shear line that ad to their stability. Lower in the aft section it allows for the hauling and setting of traps which are marked with a float that has a design linking the vessel from which it came. http://www.westislandweather.com
