Quint’s Boat

I went to Menemsha today for some excellent fried clams at  The Bite — and five pounds of harpooned swordfish from Larsen’s. On the Lobsterville beach inside the jetties was this huik, the wreck, allegedly, of the Orca, Quint’s boat in Jaws.

  1. Dave,
    in the second shot, are those commercial sword fishing boats? Just Curfious. It’s good to see you back blogging, Sahib.


  2. That is not the Orca. I was told that the orca was there about ten years ago, so I took my boat over from Woods Hole to get a look at it. The boat was a lot more intact back then, the cabin did not resemble the Orca at all. Sorry to deflate the story, but a a huge Jaws fan myself, I thought you might want to know.
