❖ Westcoasters Honor the BOUNTY and Her Crew ❖


Blakely Islander, Lance Douglas, was visiting Boothbay Harbor Shipyard a few weeks ago and caught up with good ship BOUNTY.
She was in drydock for c. one month for routine maintenance.
A farewell to BOUNTY lost in hurricane Sandy with loss of Captain and one crew.
