Engagements and weddings are usually not big news on Martha's Vineyard, where hundreds of couples tie the knot each year.
But this one has an only-on-the-Island angle, as announced on the Chappy Ferry Facebook page:
"The two youngest Chappy Ferry captains, Becca Hamilton and Jeffrey LaMarche, got engaged on November 22, 2013! Congratulations to them both!"
The announcement did not include a wedding date or other details.
The Chappy ferry, the only transportation link between Chappaquiddick Island and Edgartown, plies its 527-foot route across the neck of Edgartown Harbor 365 days a year.
