I was able to blow up the Name
on the boat using my scanner.
This is the Commercial Fishing Dragger - Elizabeth Ann.
There is an old story of how the
village of Galilee, Rhode Island got its name as follows:
One day around the turn of the
century, an old fisherman was sitting on the docks repairing his nets,
when a visitor to the area asked him,
"Where am I?" The fisherman
"And what is that?"
asked the stranger pointing across the channel to the village on the
other side. The old fisherman thought for a minute and replied,
"Must be Jerusalem."
And so, the story goes, the names Galilee and Jerusalem stuck and have
been used ever since.
