If you know the Black Duck — and who doesn’t? — you know the popular riverfront barge/bar/restaurant/hangout shares a name with the Black Duck racing boat.
Owner Pete Aitkin just received his latest toy: a custom-built 30-foot twin 300-horse Merc speedboat.
Last night, the Duck docked at the Duck.
This morning, Pete pulled it out of the water at Compo. He’ll store it till next year.
The Black Duck — food version — put Westport on the “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” map.
The maritime Black Duck did the same for offshore boat racing.
