Try Angle Moped Sales In Gloucester

Owner of Try Angle Moped Sales in Gloucester at the intersection of Railroad Ave, Maplewood Ave and Prospect. where he sells inexpensive mopeds.

The models I saw were priced from $1000-$1400. A great way to get around town in these days of high gas prices.

Similar Honda scooters run roughly $2500. Granted these aren’t Honda, but thats a huge difference in price for a brand new moped/scooter.

Old Home of The Gloucester Times

This photo I believe was taken around 1924.

It is the old home of the Gloucester Times which I believe sat in the building that houses Passports restaurant.

On the bottom floor it looks like there was Sullivan’s Drug Store in the exact spot where Passports operates.

Here is an old brochure which Mark Ring brought over from his mother’s house. There is no date on it but all the boats are powered by sail.

If you click on the picture it will bring you to a flickr page where the image is hosted. Then click the option above the picture that says “all sizes” to view it larger and more clearly.

Mark Ring’s Truck -Lobstermans Truck Series

Mark Ring, Captain of The F/V Stanley Thomas’ truck.

Here is the second truck in my lobstermens truck series.

It belongs to Mark Ring. Mark opted for a fairly basic GMC truck without 4 wheel drive. Since he ties his boat up right down the street from his house, there isn’t anyplace critical that he needs to get in the snow so 2 wheel drive is a fine option for him.

Instead of a spray-in bed liner or drop-in plastic liner, Mark opted for a rubber mat which fits snugly along the contours of his truck bed and wheel wells.

There are pros and cons to each type of truck bed protection. The pros of a rubber mat is that it is very grippy. Things don’t tend to move around much. Rubber mats are also relatively cheap in comparison to a drop-in or spray-in liner. The cons are that they don’t protect up the inside walls of the truck bed.

Mark doesn’t need to lug much gear or bait around because he stores his traps right here at our dock and we provide the bait for him so most of his truck use is light duty compared to a lobsterman that chases bait around or store traps somewhere else.

Here he has a couple of coils of rope that he took the knots out of over the slow winter months in his workshop/garage.
