Abstract

Some 240 boats fish commerically from the Cape Cod port of Barnham. They range from the “mosquito fleet” of roughly a hundred one-man boats that can go out only in good weather, to boats of 50 feet carrying a small crew. None, however, can go out for a week at a time, like the big boats one finds in other New England ports, because of the sandbar at the end of the harbor. This sandbar, treacherously shifting its location with the weather, prevents the passage of deep-draft vessels.
