Searsport High School Student Boat Launch

Two Shellback dinghies, built by eight students of the Searsport High School in the new Hamilton Learning Center at the Penobscot Marine Museum, were launched on May 28, 2014 at the Hamilton Town Warf. The eight students began building the boats on January 28th, working with master boat builder Greg Rossel and a crew of volunteers from the community. Wayne Hamilton, owner of Hamilton Marine, gave the students their last class on navigation, and now they are ready to launch the boats they had been building for the past four months.
