MISS MAGGIE II, a Calvin Beal 38, fi nished off as a sportfi sherman, for a customer from Long Island, NY by S. W. Boatworks of Lamoine.

LAMOINE – One of the busiest boatbuild- ers on the coast of Maine is S. W. Boatworks in Lamoine. They offer all the Calvin Beal and Young Brothers hulls, as well as the Libby 34 and 38. The most popular have been the Calvin hulls, and at the end of April they launched one these that they have been working on for a number of months, MISS MAGGIE II.

She is a Calvin Beal 38 and was fi nished

out as a sportfi shing/yacht for a customer from Long Island, New York. For accommo- dations, Stewart explained, “Down forward is a queen size bed. As you are coming back on the port side you have a hanging locker, and then a full galley: microwave, cook stove, refrigerator, sink, and cupboards. On the starboard side starting forward we have another hanging locker and then aft a head with a full standup shower. The shower is all polished out and it has got a Sea-land vacuum fl ush toilet.”

“Up in the shelter on the port side there are two Stidd chairs sitting on boxes where we have the air supply for the air condition- ing and the heating system,” added Stewart. “On the starboard side there is a helm chair and behind him there is a table, but it doesn’t fold-down. The owners didn’t want another bunk up there. Then over the port side there is a big L-shaped settee. Out in the cockpit we had a tackle station on the port side with a sink and drawers. On the starboard side was a cooler. In the deck there was an insulated

fi sh hold. In the transom there was a live well, which holds probably 50 gallons and then there is a tuna door and a swim platform. She has a really nice fi nish on her as she is all trimmed out in cherry.” For power she has a QSM 11, 716 hp Cummins diesel with a 2.031:1 reduction gear. She is also set up with the Aquadrive system with a 2½-inch shaft and rudder box by R. E. Thomas with a four blade 30 x 28 propeller from Nautilus Marine. She topped out at around 22 knots, and cruised around 16 knots. She was burning just around 20 gallons an hour on her cruise. That wasn’t too bad. Stewart added, “Very, very comfort- able ride and a very stable boat.” Just after she was launched, Stewart and the owner sailed her for Long Island. “We had a very uneventful trip, which is what we would like,” said Stewart. “It was like riding in a big limousine all the way down. It was fl at calm and beautiful, it was a nice ride. We stayed in Kennebunkport the fi rst night. The second night we stayed at Falmouth, MA. The third night we made Long Island and I came home the next day. “She is fairly heavy,” said Stewart. “When you start taking these 38s, they are a big boat, and start fi lling them with all of the goodies, it adds up in weight. She was around 28,500 pounds without fuel. They come from a fast speedboat and they just wanted more comfort and more stability.” Particulars: Dimensions: 38’9” x

The new Calvin 30 offered by S. W. Boatworks and fi nished by Calvin Beal of Beals Island. Upholstery.

The last boat launched by S. W. Boat- works was GERTRUDE STEELE, which was very similar and she went to York. The major difference was that she was fi nished in teak and her accommodations were a little different with the galley up. Stewart added, “MISS MAGGIE II was a little lighter in the bow, because that teak is pretty heavy and wicked expensive. The galley up kind of spreads it out so that there is a little bit more room. He had bunks forward and then
