A boat portrait of a Fortier boat named Great ACKpectations cruising past Oaks Bluff on Martha’s Vineyard. The boat’s name comes from the airport code for Nantucket Municipal Airport, “ACK”.

The boat was originally called “Manhattan Express,” but the client who commissioned it did a disappearing act after it was finished. A collector who saw it on instagram asked if she could by it, but as long as I changed the name.
