School Street Extension Ribbon Cutting Celeration

Freeport, Friday, June 10, 2011  4pm The public is invited.

• Encourage pedestrian and bicycle activity between the Village Center and Mast Landing School/Bow Street Market areas
• Connect neighborhoods with each other

Yarmouth Boat Yard Completes Falmouth Police Boat Re-Fit

Yarmouth Boat Yard recently completed the final stage of a refit to the Falmouth Police Department patrol and rescue boat. The Falmouth Police Department acquired the 2000 Ambar Marine ALSAFE 700 in 2007. The boat was in United States Coast Guard surplus and had been retired in Jonesport.

The experts in the parts and service department began by installing two new Honda outboard engines to provide better reliability and fuel economy. Next, new sponsons were installed to extend the use of the aluminum hull. The final step was to remove all of the finish coats on the boat, strip all of the systems, repair the aluminum deck and coat the hull.
