1st Voyage

June 2017

On the 3rd of June 2017,  F/V Harmony out of Portland Maine deployed the Scarborough Sailor on Georges Bank. After an excursion into Southern New England waters south of Martha’s Vineyard, it turned northeast into the Gulf of Maine. On 27 June 2017, it was  rescued before hitting the rocks by a Calvin Mallocks, a Campobello Island lobsterman.

Joe Finnegan who works at the NOAA lab in Woods Hole, happened to be going to his summer home on Campobello the following day!  Since he knows Calvin and his wife Laurie, he called their house, surprised them with information about this little boat.  Joe’s wife Carol returned the boat 400+ miles to Massachusetts where it will be prepared for another journey.

It needs a new sail since it apparently lost its original underway.  Given its track against the prevailing currents however, it seems as though it had a sail for most of its journey.
