    7.5 HP Scott Atwater!

    Haven’t heard that since the 1960’s! My dad had the outboard but no boat. We would rent a boat and use the engine.

    My experience in Maine is limited to the South Portland area. It’s too cold up there for this Southern boy!

    Yep, Scott Atwater with "Bail-O-Matic"

    I still love Nunan's Lobster Pound and the Chart Table Restaurant at the Cape Porpoise Commercial Dock. There used to be a restaurant across from the Fire-Department called the Wayfarer that I loved. I think it is a gift shop now. I have a painting of it hanging in my house, which I will have to post some time. Same for the painting I have of the Kennybunkport Sign post with all the arrows pointing to the local attactions.

    Spent many a early December there for Winter Prelude too.

    Now I get up into the area with my seaplane from time to time and actually will be flying up tomorrow to pick up lobsters for a Lobster Party I am throwing on Monday. At $4.00 a pound off the commercial dock, I can cover the fuel and still save a bunch.

    The winter prelude is always great if the temp. is above 0! The wife and I like going up to Federal Jack's in Kennebunkport.
    The view of the river is better than the food! With the virus going around it's not to crowded this summer. I had a buddy from N.Y. come up last month. I took him over to the York river where lobster are cheap this time of year. 13 lobster for $60.00 buck's! You cant beat that with a stick. From the boat to the pot in about 1 hour!

    About to leave for the airport. I should be airborne by 9:30 and back around 2:00. I brought 300 lobsters back one year, this time I am only getting 100 or so. Into Sanford where they lend me a van to head to the commercial dock in the Port and where I can buy them wholesale from the lobstermen.

    The price had gone up, $4.30 per pound, but still better than the $19.95 they are charging here per pound for 1 1/4 pounders.

    The cheapest I've ever seen up here was $229.00. The wife and I enjoyed the lobster that summer! I think it was 2014. The most lobster harvested since the early 1950's!
