Gene and Jimmy shoot from the Whaler in front of Megayacht Row
In early July, 2013, the crew of New England Boating TV visited the storied port of Nantucket Harbor—a beautiful boating destination that offers plenty to do and see, both on shore and on the water.
In the episode, co-hosts Tom and Parker Kelley get things started by launching their Boston Whaler 250 Outrage at the Bass River ramp in Yarmouth then making the 18-mile run across a calm Nantucket Sound. After arriving, they get a detailed harbor tour from George Bassett, dockmaster at the Nantucket Boast Basin. George explains how to safely navigate the main channel and how to get around the busy inner harbor.
Later in the show, Capt. Bob Decosta of the charter boat Albacore take Tom and Parker to the waters off Sconset Light for a bit of striper fishing. Also on the hit list is a visit to the Cisco Brewery, a harborside feast at the Brant Point Grill at the White Elephant Resort, a bit of beach time, and a look at some of the shops in town.
