After a successful sailing season to the South Coast of Newfoundland with a full crew of MMA students, preparations are in place for winter maintenance. This winter, MMA will complete a hull refurbishment project to ensure that the Bowdoin is able to continue serving her mission as a training vessel, as the Official Vessel of the State of Maine, and as a National Historic Landmark.
This week the shipyard is busy preparing the vessel to be moved into Building 4 at The Shipyard in Boothbay Harbor. This climate-controlled workspace will allow for maximum efficiency to complete the work needed so that Bowdoin will be able to sail for her 98th season of operation.
Enjoy the photos, and thank you for your interest in the project!
All the best,
