||The two channel markers seen in the Cam Image are Red 18 and Green 17, located in the Weymouth Fore River. This channel is used by many commuter boats, pleasure craft and large tankers.
The Harbor Express T commuter boat from Quincy to Boston/Logan passes between these channel markers many times each day. This boat is the most common boat seen on the Boston Harbor Cam.
During the summer months hundreds of boats pass through the channel every day. Boats from the Quincy Bay Point Marina, Braintree Yacht Club, Wessagusset Yacht Club, Fore River Shipyard, Captain's Cove and other Marinas use the channel for access to Boston Harbor, Hingham Bay, Hull Gut and the Harbor Islands.
The Fore River channel provides access to Peddock's Island, Grape Island, Slate Island, Bumpkin Island, World's End, Hingham and Boston Harbor.
