BELFAST, ME — Received a short note and photo late yesterday from Sunbeam Capt. Mike Johnson, who said, “Brian and Art from Art’s Canvas & Upholstery in Belmont, ME were aboard the Sunbeam Monday night, June 22, to measure for our new cushions. These two know their stuff. I believe even sewed their own masks!”
Thanks, Capt. Mike, for the updater.
BELFAST, ME — Front Street Shipyard, where the Sunbeam is having a re-fit, posts this May 3 photo of “the new crew cabins on Sunbeam.” Looking good.

BELFAST, ME — Again we thank Front Street Shipyard for providing update photos of the Sunbeam refit. This photo was posted April 24th on the shipyard’s Twitter account. The photo caption: New stainless steel piping work in SUNBEAM’s engine room.
BELFAST, ME — The Mission’s boat Sunbeam is having its routine major refit at Front Street Shipyard in Belfast, ME. The first Sunbeam photos out of Front Street, about a year ago, were of a Sunbeam with its interior gutted for the first time in a quarter century. The expansive surface rust made a startling impression. You can see those photos by searching the Mission blog using keyword “Sunbeam.”
This current photo from Front Street, as with all of the shipyard’s recent Sunbeam Twitter photos, is encouraging and gratifying. It shows a Front Street craftsman “putting insulation above the main salon on Sunbeam.“
