The boat in Manchester by the Sea

What kind if boat was that in Manchester by the Sea. It did not appear to be a fishing boat, I thought it might be more for hauling freight, but not great for that either.

Here is an article from the Boston NBC affiliate about the family that owns the boat shown in the movie. It’s described as a fishing boat in that article. (BTW, this page from a site about the boat’s namesake has a nice photo of the boat and the site describes it as a commercial fishing boat.)

I think the boat is used for hauling lobster traps.

Thanks for the info. It did not look like any fishing boat I have ever been on or seen, but if it was for lobster fishing, that makes more sense.

Keep in mind I have no proof that’s what it’s for. It’s just my guess.
