This sign is a fairly recent addition at the City Docks at Conn Brown Harbor. It's a very good indication of how things have changed in Aransas Pass...the shrimpers I used to know would have torn it down and hung it in a bar somewhere.
This is one of those 6.00/hr. parking slots. You'd think for $144.00 per day, you'd at least get a pier that would support a man's weight.
It was a beautiful day though and I got some shots to prove it!
This is a stabiliser...when the outriggers are down, these are lowered into the water, one on each side...they run just below the surface of the water and pull down on the boat...really helps to keep the boat from rolling side to side. With that little tidbit of trawler wisdom, I'll bid y'all adios!
