Port Jeff ferry

The rain finally stopped long enough to walk around Port Jefferson. We love to watch the huge, powerful ferry turn in the harbor loaded with so many cars. Don't you wonder how something so heavy can float? I know why, but it always amazes me. I feel the same when I see a heavy plane take off and fly. Doesn't seem possible, but it is. Just amazing!

During the 1960s, I launched my 15 foot boat out of the launching ramp at Port Jefferson. My cousin also launched a PM 38(Popular Mechanics 38) that same day too. Went out into the sound and caught some flounders. My cousin after that trip felt his boat was just too small so he sold it and went into a larger fiberglass boat.
