    BOAT LAUNCH JONESPORT LOUSE AND WANITA.jpg

    Loren Faulkingham shared this great video on Maine Lobster Boats on FB (a public page): "Launching a new boat old school on Beals, Me. This boat was built by Mariner Beal for Raymond Smith from Jonesport."

    Here's the link to the video: My memories

    That is awesome. Louise and Wanita looked strong! Who needs a Brownell Trailer!!! Planks down Main St and a pickup work plus the family and friends.

    My family just drove down that road less than a month ago and we will be back again soon. We all can’t wait. I only wish that I could see that happen again when we get there.

    The place is still special though.

    Really good Video thanks !! And the rednecks think they invented the saying "Git er Done" . Yankee ingenuity at it's finest and a head knowing what Can and Can't be done !! Love it. :)

    Nice looking boat.

    The Publisher of MAINE COASTAL NEWS says that the year was 1968.
