The Richard & Arnold’s final voyage out of Provincetown

With my family on board, the Richard & Arnold sailed from Provincetown Harbor for the last time on Memorial Day. The Richard & Arnold holds an important place in the town and nation’s history as one of the oldest continually fishing vessels left in the U.S. For 36 years, it was ours. She was built in 1934 by Casey Boat Yard in Fairhaven. History tells us that the harbor was once filled with boats like the Richard & Arnold, the wheelhouse in the stern, constructed of wood, with fishing nets hanging from the rigging. In a perfect world the Richard & Arnold would have stayed in Provincetown forever. >click to read<08:57
