‘Sunbeam’ Updater – Meet Freelance Welder John Stoklas

BELFAST, ME — Sunbeam Captain Mike Johnson spends much of his workdays at Front Street Shipyard in Belfast, ME overseeing the routine major refitting of the boat. Both Mike and photographers at Front Street continue doing a good job chronicling the Sunbeam refit and the craftsman doing the work.

“This is John Stoklas,” writes Mike, who took this photo on Feb. 28th. “John is a freelance welder contracted by Front Street Shipyard to help with some of the larger welding jobs aboard the Sunbeam. This photo shows John removing an exhaust mounting bracket from the old engine room ceiling to install on the new ceiling,” explained Capt. Johnson.

Thank you, John Stoklas.
