NANCY RUTH, May 25, 1966

Fern Carter built this boat for himself and named it for his young daughters. He fished from her for about 20 years, replacing her with another wooden lobster boat and then a fiberglass boat in 2005.

The Carter family and friends are aboard. Nancy and Ruth are sitting on the bow, and Bimbo is on the roof in this photo, taken as the inaugural ride is about to begin.
