Boothbay Harbor Windjammer Days
We visited the Shipyard in June during Boothbay Harbor Windjammer Days. Bristol Marine held a reception on Monday to share the work they are doing. Ross Branch described the work and the shipwrights provided an above and below deck tour of the progress since last year.

There was a lot more to see! The next step, the contract for Phase II.
