boat earns recognition
BATH – A group of 14 Morse High School students built an 18-foot 17th century shallop boat called the “Jane Stevens,” last summer under the supervision of Morse High School science teacher Eric Varney and master shipwright Will West.
The shallop project boat recently was named “Boat of the Year 2010” by Maine Boats, Homes and Harbors magazine, and a story detailing the shallop project is featured in the current winter edition of the magazine.
The shallop project was initiated by Maine’s First Ship, a non-profit dedicated to reconstructing a replica of a 17th century pinnace, The Virginia, the first ship built by the English in America.
Maine’s First Ship has plans to sponsor a winter/spring program at the Bath Regional Career and Technical Center in order to complete the rigging and finishing touches for the Jane Stevens, and begin working on The Virginia.
