pretty sure this boat worked as a side rig clam dredge for a while in the 1980s at the outer Cape Cod port of Provincetown, MA along with a number of others of the same fleet. They took out their catch at Fisherman's Wharf. However she's got southern 'pogy' (bunkers, menhaden etc) boat heritage. Maybe she's back at pogy fishing, there are almost no side rig clammers of that size anymore.

edit: I found out online that it was fixed up and returned to service :-)
