The traditional Pea Pod fishing dory is a solo operation inshore, holding up to three crew or passengers, or is one among a fleet of tenders for a larger boat. Loaded onboard and carried out to sea, the Pea Pods are lowered into the water for fishing a long hand line. Fishermen return to the mother ship with the catch. Last spring, Humphrey and friends used the Pea-Quod this way. Sailing a bigger boat with the Pea-Quod in tow from Beaufort, he says, “We got up there to Cape Lookout Bight. In there’s a giant basin. It’s way out in the ocean. You’ve got a whole lot of breeze blowing at it but it’s protected; there’re no waves.” They anchored the larger cruising sail-boat, launched the Pea-Quod and sailed around the bight for about six hours. “As the sun was going down, fish were feeding and we’d just sailed through and catch a fish on the hand line, sail through again and catch another one.” On the return trip, Humphrey sailed the Pea-Quod in the open ocean from Cape Lookout back to Beaufort. “It’s got a certain historic pedigree that anybody who sees you rowing or sailing has to comment on it,” Humphrey says. It’s the essence of boat.” Porsche of Fayetteville 910-487-0000 • 800-264-3203 3211 Bragg Blvd. Fayetteville, N.C. 28303 www.porscheoffayetteville.com
