An unusual sight for a landlubber is a dragger with outriggers extended during a trawl, enhancing the boat’s lateral stability. (Think of how you’d position your arms outward if you were trying to walk a tightrope or a fence rail.) Teri M. is slightly over 22 feet abeam, but with these arms out, she has a profile about 100 feet wide. She was built in 1969 by Toche Boat Builders in Ocean Springs, Miss., and is 68½ feet long, one of the largest boats in the Provincetown fleet. Capt. Michael Silva, the owner, comes from a fishing family.
