Da Forktruck

IMG_0097

Here’s our forktruck.  We’ve had it for about 7 years or so.

Yes, it’s covered with rust.  New forktrucks can operate in manufacturing plants away from salt water conditions like we operate and look brand new 10-15 years later but operating on the dock exposed to the elements and with the salt water mist from the tanks covering everything, they just turn to rust.

A new forktruck would cost about $30,000 and would look exactly like ours within a couple of years down our dock.  Salt water just eats away at everything.

Meet Our Lobstermen- Toby Burnham

Here’s Toby.  What is unusual about this picture is that Toby is in the office.  Normally Toby goes lobstering every single day.  There are a couple of our guys that go fishing every single day like Toby and we award the guy who has the most landings at the end of the year with the title of Ironman.
