A Fresh View from the ‘Sunbeam’ Pilot House

BELFAST, ME — Sunbeam Captain Mike Johnson demonstrating one of the new anti-fog pilot house windows. This photo was taken late February 2020 by Mission Communications Associate Hunter Billings at Front Street Shipyard in Belfast, ME.

Before and during the Sunbeam routine major refit, Capt. Mike self-produced walk-through video updaters on the work in progress. In February, Hunter manned the camcorder and worked with Mike on the latest boat updater video which will soon be available to the public.

Meanwhile, take a peek at Capt. Mike’s last updater video from September 2019.

BELFAST, ME — Mission Communications Associate Hunter Billings was at Front Street Shipyard, Belfast, ME with Sunbeam Captain Mike Johnson. The two men went on a Sunbeam “walk through,” with Mike Johnson narrating current aspects of the boat’s routine major refit, while Hunter caught it all on video and digital photographs.

Their goal? To produce a third Sunbeam video update for the public, and to have on hand, up-to-date photos of Johnson and the boat. This photo shows Capt. Johnson just outside the Sunbeam pilot house. The Sunbeam itself is shown in various stages of refitting: places covered in plastic sheets, clear plastic fresh air tubes attached to the boat, scaffolding erected, wooden sawhorses and work tables are scattered on the deck.
