August Mystery Harbor: Nantucket Boat Basin

Best job I ever had

I grew up working the docks of the Nantucket Boat Basin, it was the best job one could have. The photo was taken in front of what is called the “Ice House,” which both houses ice and is staff housing. The sailboat in the photo is called the Walter Green, a beautiful 47’ Morgan sailboat. The photo was likely taken late in the fall, as it looks quite peaceful and quiet.

I keep my sailboat there

Nantucket Harbor is the July mystery harbor. That is Brant Point Light to left in the photo. The photo is taken from within the boat basin. I keep my sailboat on a mooring in Nantucket Harbor.
