PEMAQUID MARINE PROJECTS
Pemaquid Marine completed construction of four Banks Coves and expects to complete 2 more by the end of 2001. Completed boats include:
Bobcat is a hard-top model that is powered by a 3.0 litre, freshwater-cooled, Volvo-Penta Aquamatic with sterndrive. Bobcats owners asked us to customize the seating to a configuration similar to their sailboat.
Calmar is a day-boat model that was featured at the March 2001 Maine Boat Builders Show. Calmars brightwork was the talk of the boat show, particularly the 3-panelled teak windshield. The V-berth below was fitted with a Raritan head and Lectra/San waste treatment system. Calmar is powered by a Sea Max and Hamilton Jet Drive.
Eliza is a center-console model powered by a 90-hp Honda four stroke outboard.
Another center console, yet unnamed, is powered by a 130-hp Honda four stroke outboard.
By the end of 2001 we expect to complete construction on 2 hard-top model to be powered by outboards on an Armstrong Bracket.
Pemaquid Marine replaced a lugger diesel engine on a Holland 38 at the beginning of shrimping season. The project required the removal and re-installation of the aft wheelhouse bulkhead and two coats of gelcoat. The boat was hauled and launched within 72 hours to minimize lost fishing time.
The Ira Darling Center in Walpole selected Pemaquid Marine to install a 10-foot structural beam in the Centers 42 Westmac to reinforce the decks for the placement of gallus frames. This project required cutting away the transom and aft water-tight bulkhead. At the completion of the project the restoration of the finished areas showed no evidence that any work had been done.
We replaced planking, the transom and upgraded the Evolution Shafting System for a 34-foot Wood Deep V-Hull M/V.
On a locally-built 32 wood Lobster boat we repaired/replaced deck planking and trunk cabin sides; repaired deck beams; refinished the deck with dynel and epoxy; and, re-wired the entire vessel to ABYC standards.
For the owner of an 18-foot Anton-Wallace built strip-plank skiff we repaired the frame and planking, painted her inside and out, and installed new combing, toe-rails and guards finished bright.
A local fisherman had us replace the gas engine of his 32-foot lobster boat with a Yanmar diesel.
In addition to the above projects, 18 of Pemaquid Marines regular storage customers requested extensive repairs, brightwork and/or fiberglass repair to their boats. Were not only proud of the customer satisfaction with our work but that for the 11th straight year we did the work without missing a promised launch date.
