Yesterday was a difficult day for the Maine Maritime Museum family. The schooner Mary E suffered a knockdown off Doubling Point Light on the Kennebec River, just downriver from the museum. Above all, we are so grateful for the incredible efforts of the Mary E crew and the multiple organizations and individuals who assisted in bringing all those aboard safely to shore, including SeaTow, Bath Iron Works, Bath Police/Fire, Bath Harbor Patrol, and the Coast Guard. We continue to work with the Coast Guard, and expect to right the vessel and bring the Mary E home. We will share more information as it becomes available. To our community, museum friends, and all those who have reached out: we are overwhelmed by the outpouring of support and love for our little schooner and all those involved– thank you.
