‘Sunbeam’ Update – Insulating the Main Salon

BELFAST, ME — The Mission’s boat Sunbeam is having its routine major refit at Front Street Shipyard in Belfast, ME. The first Sunbeam photos out of Front Street, about a year ago, were of a Sunbeam with its interior gutted for the first time in a quarter century. The expansive surface rust made a startling impression. You can see those photos by searching the Mission blog using keyword “Sunbeam.”

This current photo from Front Street, as with all of the shipyard’s recent Sunbeam Twitter photos, is encouraging and gratifying. It shows a Front Street craftsman “putting insulation above the main salon on Sunbeam.
