For work this summer, he built four pea- pods, which had been pre-built with one seat, but unfortunately all those ordered needed to be two seaters. He also did a number of small repair jobs on various boats this summer, which kept him and his crew busy. As soon as all storage customers are in for the winter they will begin their spring work. They also have several people talking about bigger projects but nothing defi nite yet.

The Blue Hill job is still ongoing. They

maintain a fl eet of small boats for an owner there and they work out of his shop. Last winter the Shellback which had been dam- aged was replaced with a new dinghy to the owner’s son’s design.

Bass Harbor Boat in Bernard is work- ing on a 32-foot wooden boat. She was built by John Leonard of Southwest Harbor, who had worked with Robert Rich years ago. They have replaced 16 timbers, a few planks and refastened her. She is scheduled to be done early this fall.

They are also doing some work on a 40 foot powerboat built by Sim Davis of Bass Harbor in 1941. They have done some repair work to her decks, guards, top plank, rails and bottom as well as some painting. Like all yards most of the time this fall has been taken up winterizing this storage customers. The new storage shed they put up last fall is full and these boats will create some work for the winter. They also have two to three engine repower to do this winter

as well as a lot of paint and varnish work.

A. J. Enterprises in Winter Harbor is back working in his shop. When the econo- my went sour he left and went to work for a lobster pound in Milbridge and work there for the last few seasons. However, last winter he got an order for an AJ 28 and returned to the shop.

In the shop is this 28, which will be

fi nished out as a cruiser for a customer from Connecticut. For accommodations she has a V-berth, galley and enclosed head. She also has the last 315 Yanmar diesel. She was started in December of 2011 and will be done this coming spring. Presently they are working on her platform and putting in the systems and hatch covers.

Out on the side of the building is another 28 which is almost complete. She was built on spec and probably will be fi nished this winter. She is also a full cruiser with the same interior and same power. For those interested, she is for sale. The 315 Yanmar diesel is no longer available and owner Alan Johnson hopes that his buyers will switch to the BY-260 BMW/Yanmar diesel. Even though she has less horsepower she would still cruise easily at 20 knots.

Alan has also done some interior moulding over the last few years, which gives his boats a smooth fi nish on the inside as well as out. It also will lower the cost of construction slightly.
