A happy gathering of owners of signature boats built by Lyman-Morse over the past 38 years graced the face docks in Camden this past weekend. C. Raymond Hunt designed, Whistler and Taba; the Chuck Paine and Mark Fitzgerald desinged Tarka; Setzer designed Resilient and Jarvis Newman designed Bounder, S&S designed Nighthawk; the Wesmac 50 Lorax and Seguin 44 Thistle made for quite a sight for Camden.
A dockside cocktail party Friday night featured local oysters and clams; Rod and Rosemary Mitchell were back from Browne Trading with smoked salmon and trout; and this time, caviar from the Snake River. We are becoming quite the caviar aficionados this summer! Thank you Rod and Rosemary.
Saturday morning, we toured the Thomaston facility. Vesper will soon be back in the water and the North side of Building 11 will be filled with the construction of the cold molded 65’ Anna. Bob Stephens, principal of Stephens Waring Yacht Design gave an over view of this project and other design concepts from this Belfast design firm. Could there be a twin-masted catamaran in our future?
From there the group headed the Rockland for an Art Tour of 250 Main, our new hotel, then it was back to Camden for the afternoon.
The finale was a fun, interesting and yummy evening at Cellardoor Winery – yes we grow grapes in Maine! We look forward to next official gathering summer of 2018 for our 40th Anniversary!
