MAINE BOATBUILDERS SHOW Page 17. News of the Boatbuilder and Repairers of Maine


This winter the schooner BOWDOIN is getting a new deck and...


will be turning a hallway into the pantry. They are also rebuilding a lot of paneling in the main salon. A lot of wiring work, new overhead lighting, new AV systems, and new backbone for a new electronic system in the future is also in the works. Also we cannot forget the new hot tub that will be added to the upper deck. As for the exterior they will be repainting the entire boat, top to bottom. To do this they will need to repair a lot of corrosion work and rust from the past. This project will be launched late this summer. She will then undergo about a month of commissioning before heading south. The future plan is to have her return for phase II, which will include more systems work and probably rebuilding the crew area. Other boats that are going on: AURO-


RA, an 80 foot Burger, is back and they are painting the house sides this year. This means they are completely redoing the for- ward end of the house from door-to-door, basically sandblasting everything down to


aluminum and build it back up. There is also some other carpentry work that needs to be done on the boat. They have new generators going in and a new windlass going on a Celine 58. They are taking out the skeg rudder and


putting in a carbon spade rudder on Sequin 44.


A stern thruster is going in a Little Har- bor 48 that has been stretched to 54. They have done a number of paint jobs


this winter. They have done a deck on a Morris 44 powerboat; a Sequin 44 was in for new paint; as well as a Pearson 30 and an East Bay 48. They also have four or fi ve more paint jobs to go before spring including the famous fade-job on an Etchells. Sunshades and an electronics package,


including some wiring work on a Bristol 47. There are a number of sportfi shing boats


hauled up for the winter at the yard. A Merit 46 has had her entire forward cabin ripped out and it is being rebuilt into a double. They

also have cut the cockpit out, replaced the fuel tanks, and put a new cockpit back in the boat.


There is a Bertram 46 that is getting a lot of electrical work done. Another sportfi shing boat in the yard


had suff ered damage to her rail when one of the schooners broke loose in Portland. They are replacing rails on the damaged side as some gelcoat and paint work. There are also commercial fi shing boats


hauled up on the hard, some of them for work. They hauled an 80 foot steel fi shing boat, which turned into the saga of the cen- tury. The crew tried to replace the cutlass bearing, but it had been put in with chockfast as a quick and cheap fi x. When it wore out it


was nearly impossibility to get it out. They said they tried everything to get it out and fi nally it came out in pieces and they were able to put a new cutlass bearing back in. The tugboat, CAPT. MAC, an old ST


tug, has just been purchased by a person from Maryland and she will be leaving later this spring. As for other changes they are building


new offi ces upstairs in Building 1 in an eff ort to make it easier on the management side of things.
