05/23/17 The Margaret Todd

Posted: May 28, 2017 in Uncategorized

Once a year the Margaret Todd, a four mast schooner, comes up on the shore for a paint job. They have about 8 hours between tides to finish the job. There is about a thirteen foot tide differential here at Hulls Cove in Bar Harbor.

    The Margaret Todd schooner is an impressive vessel! Painting the schooner is tedious in itself but to paint it with respect to the tides is mind boggling!
