Virginia's propeller and drive shaft arrived today and will be installed soon. You can see it here still wrapped in plastic with "Virginia" etched on one of the blades. Another step towards the launch which is now 225 days away. ... See MoreSee Less

Ten years in the making (like Virginia) the work to install a brick sidewalk in front of the Bath Freight Shed has started. It features 88 laser engraved bricks funded by donors to the Bath Freight Shed Alliance which has merged into Maine's First Ship.
There will be traffic and parking restrictions on Commercial Street near the freight shed until this work is complete.
You can see here the remnants of the railroad track which went along Commercial Street up to Oak.

OH my!

Making the run back from the coal pocket. 1941. Curious what prompted the removal of the second story? Maine's First Ship

Ha! I was wondering if my Dad's memorial brick would ever appear...

Cool

Going to keep the track in there with the pricks around it? Why not Maine Central RR colors of gray and green? Just curious.

Marc I see rail beams.

Woohoo!

Members of the Morse High School Class of 2025 shared their enthusiasm, youthful spirits, and--lucky for us!--their strong young backs pitching in on various projects throughout the community today. Here, under the direction of Shipwright Rob Stevens, a few of those who visited us at MFS sort through wood in the yard. Thank you!! ... See MoreSee Less

On Indigenous Peoples' Day, we at Maine's First Ship honor the first boat builders of Maine who built the lightweight, resilient, and easily repairable birchbark canoe. With it they traveled the bays and rivers of Maine, and in larger versions to the islands and on to Nova Scotia and Newfoundland.

See mfship.org/before-popham/ for a brief introduction to the native peoples of Maine, including links to several videos featuring birchbark canoes.
