Lobster Boat Races with Jon Johansen
February 3 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm$5
What does it take to race a lobster boat? How do Maine lobster boat races work? In this presentation, Jon Johansen, Penobscot Marine Museum Board President and President of the Maine Lobster Boat Racing Association, will discuss the logistics of the races and exciting stories and photographs.
Jon is also the founder and publisher of Maine Coastal News, which covers all aspects of boating along the Maine coast. His extensive maritime history research led him to form the International Maritime Library, a digital library that consists of countless transcriptions from maritime publications and a database of more than 100,000 vessels.
This event is free; suggested donation: $5
