S. W. Boatworks in Lamoine is busy. In the main shop they have a 38 foot Calvin Beal hull being fi nished out as a sport fi sh boat for a customer on Long Island, New York. She has a full interior which includes
it with a 350-hp Mercruiser. They then added Soundown engine installation, which will make her run extremely quiet. Next came new fuel tanks and are now replacing the wooden platform. They started the project in November and should be done after the fi rst of the year. A 1970, 33 foot Bunker & Ellis LE PIQUE NIQUE is in to have Soundown muffl ers added to make her quieter. She had also never had an engine box and one is being built, which will also help to lessen the sound. It is interesting to note that Ray- mond Bunker and Ralph Ellis did not run the bulkhead all the way down to the keel, which in some cases could cause problems. Bunker ran this boat for about 15 years and she is now run by Barry Thomas. Once the repair work is completed they will do her annual maintenance.
There are a number of boats out in the storage shed and in the yard that need various amounts of repair work. Out there they have another Bunker & Ellis 36 that needs paint and varnish and some trunk cabin repairs; a 37 foot Ron Rich boat for new windows in the cabin along with paint and varnish; and they just fi nished SEA QUEEN, a Bunker & Ellis, which was in for her annual main- tenance already.

In the other shop is a Wesmac 46, which
is being fi nished out as a split wheelhouse lobster boat for a fi sherman from Vinalhav- en. This one is just being started. She will have a simple interior which will include a
V-berth, head and gear locker. A 34 foot Calvin Beal hull is being

Other hulls on order include: a Calvin Beal 44 to Milbridge; three 36s, one to Hebron, Friendship and Bass Harbor; and a Young Brothers 40 and 45.
This is the 92-foot steamer SEDGWICK built at Brewer in 1886. She was one of 24 steamers built by Capt. Samuel H. Barbour for his Bangor to Bar Harbor Steamship Co. These steam- ers were actually built at the Oakes yard, which is where the Getchell Ice Co. is today..
