The newest boat in the North Ferry fleet — the Menhaden — steamed into Greenport Harbor a little after 7:30 p.m Wednesday.

Onboard were North Ferry Manager Bridg Hunt and his crew of Tom Graffagnino, Chris Corcoran and Jason Brewer.

It was the Menhaden’s first voyage, a 28-hour trip home from the Maine shipyard where she was built.

After testing and some fine-tuning, the ferry will go into service between Greenport and Shelter Island.
