BAR HARBOR, ME — Meet Maine Seacoast Mission’s Sunbeam crew at the Maine Fishermen’s Forum, March 1-3, Samoset Resort, Rockland, ME. According to the Fishermen’s Forum web site, “This is the largest event of its kind in New England – one dedicated to offering fishermen, clammers, lobstermen, aquaculturalists and other related seafood industry participants an opportunity to meet on neutral ground with fisheries managers, state representatives, Congressmen and Senators.”
The Sunbeam crew was featured last month in the New York Times piece, Life on an Island: Silence, Beauty and a Long Wait for the Ferry.
The Sunbeam table is part of the Forum Trade Show in the Spruce Head Room.
Since its founding in 1905, a Maine Seacoast Mission boat has always served the islands. The Sunbeam V is 75-feet long with a beam of 21 feet and a seven foot draft. The boat has state-of-the-art telemedicine equipment and a salon that serves as a meeting place for fellowship, meals, and meetings. The Sunbeam also sometimes hosts weddings and funerals.
