International Workboat Show
Each year a group of students and staff travel to New Orleans to attend the International Workboat Show. Maine Maritime has a display booth at the conference / show. Our students and staff man the booth, while there they have a chance to see first hand the newest technology as well as to meet and exchange information with a large number of people involved in all aspects of the work boat industry. In early December 2000 Captain Leach and Harry Stevens ( Pentagoet Eng. ) as well as Mr. Richard Youcis attended the show. Initial reports from the show team were that Maine Maritime was once again a flag ship for our alumni in the New Orleans area. Over 50 Alumni came by the booth and met with our representatives. A number of industry contacts were made and “continued”. Harry reports that numerous marine supply / engineering companies are moving ahead with donations to the academy based upon meeting us at the show. Keep it up!
