Yesterday afternoon I headed down to the Rockland Harbor Park dock to take some photos and video of the J&E Riggin coming home to Rockland. More importantly I was there to catch lines. Also on the dock with me was Don Carrigan from WCSH, our local NBC station, and Emily Sapienza from Village Soup. A short clip of the Riggin coming home appeared on last nights news and Village Soup ran a piece today with some pretty nice photos. I hate that there a “big butt” shot, but man-oh-man if you could have heard the sound of the Riggin scrapping on the dock you would have used all your strength to push her off too.
I do have to say she looks beautiful. Captain Jon and the crew at Boothbay Shipyard did a great job putting her back together again. In case you hadn’t heard…she was vandalized back in December.
