You can't get near Vinalhaven without seeing hundreds of pot buoys. They form a sort of minefield around the island that lobster boats and ferries navigate daily. From the beginning, lobstermen have needed a marker for their traps and a way to distinguish their gear from everyone else. Each lobsterman has their own unique color combination and design - sometimes passing those combinations (or variations of) down to children and grandchildren. The feature exhibit this wummer will pay tribute to past and present Vinalhaven lobstermen with a display of mini pot buoys.
