Head out into the Atlantic on the F/V Hard Merchandise!
The F/V Hard Merchandise is a 38ft Danielshead solid fiberglass Novi boat. We are not fast and fancy but we are efficient and we do catch fish. Captain Dave has a long history of supporting his family catching fish – the bottom line is if he doesn’t produce fish, he doesn’t pay the bills. So this, combined with the limited opportunity to do charters, results in one of the most exciting opportunities that you could have on a boat in your lifetime, in the inshore Gulf of Maine.
The boat is docked in historic Gloucester, Massachusetts, down at the famous Gloucester Marine Railways, which is the oldest still-working marine railway in the country.
If you have an interest in a charter, throw out your ideas and potential dates to Captain Dave and he can let you know the best times and availability for that time of year but please remember; we are a working fishing vessel so charter opportunities are very limited.
