Montague Bakery Boat

Does anyone remember the bakery boat in Montague?

Ever since I got back into sailing. My kids and I particularly used to enjoy a visit to Montague Harbour,
My daughter and I would row over to the old converted ferry boat. anchored in the middle of the bay and order some fresh cinnamon buns for the morning.
I was in there a few times last summer but the baker boat was not there.

Does anyone know if they are still doing it. or have they retired.

The bus to the Humming Bird is still kind of fun.

Re: Montague Bakery Boat

The Hummingbird bus IS still kinda fun.

We've been sailing here since the early 80s and I don't recall ever seeing a bakery in Montague.. I wonder if they moved to Squirrel Cove, Cortez Is which is where we always rowed over in the morning for cinammon buns. They ran for a number of years in the 80s and 90s, and perhaps beyond, in a floating house. Not there anymore either.

Re: Montague Bakery Boat

... and speaking of the Hummingbird Pub, I just tried to go to their web site to make sure the bus will be running when I get there, and it appears to be non-existent! PLEASE tell me they're still open and the bus is still running and they just forgot to pay their web site bill!

I don't know if they're still doing it. I had some lovely cinnamon rolls when I was there about 7 years ago and "think" I remember someone say that they weren't doing it any longer, but I can't be sure.

Faster, It was a retired couple on a wooden tugboat that was converted to a pleasure boat. You would row up to the boat and place an order and a time (they only had 1 small oven) and arrive the next day and eat cinnamon rolls on their back deck. It was awesome and they were really cheap as well. I think they really just liked doing it. They had a pretty cool old boat.
