Updater – Building out the ‘Sunbeam V’ Cabins

BELFAST, ME – Before the Mission’s Sunbeam V was out of the water, its major routine refit was described as removing the insides of the boat and redesigning them. This photo, thanks to Front Street Shipyard, illustrates the point. A shipyard worker is building out the boat cabins in a way that best suits the Sunbeam crew’s work these days.

One final thought. Front Street’s worker appears to be working on the other side of the hole we see cut in the Sunbeam in the other, earlier photo.
