Thinking out of the box

07 July 2012 | Bath, ME
We are hanging on a mooring for two nights at the Maine Maritime Museum on the Kennebec River in Bath. The tide sluices by at 2-3 knots making getting in and out of the dinghy a bit of an adventure.

Lots of good changes since we used to bring the boys here 20 years ago. Including an incredible sculpture of the bow and stern sections of the largest wooden vessel ever built, 400 plus feet, the six masted Wyoming. On the same footprint where she was built one hundred years ago. There is some talk of filling in the major sections and the masts, but we like it just the way it is.

We toured the Bath Iron Works, a storied shipyard where they are now building the new stealthy Zumwalt class of destroyers. At $3 billion a pop. And we're only building three of them. So add the design and development cost, and it's $5 billion each. They'd better handle that baby like a Fabrege egg!
