News Center Maine - Washburn and Doughty Builds New Ferry

The new Maine State Ferry Service boat, Captain Richard G. Spear, set sail in East Boothbay on Friday.

“A launch is nerve-wracking and tense on a good day, and then you add a little drama (and) its nerve-wracking,” said Katie Doughty Maddox.

She was breathing easier by then, after the new Maine State Ferry Service boat, Captain Richard G. Spear finally slid down the ways and into the Damariscotta River.

We will forever appreciate Sheridan’s great work at the yard after the fire. Sheridan did an amazing job helping us get back to full production.
