An orange 18-foot dory was displayed in front of the White House with a message on the sail:”Mr. President protect Georges Bank for fish. Stop lease sale #42.” The boat also contained 2,000 signatures supporting the protest of selling oil drilling leases due to the fear of oil spills polluting fishing grounds.
