Mount Desert Island is home to high-end yacht builders, lobster boat builders, and traditional sloop builders. Maine Coastal News publisher Jon Johansen will serve as moderator with boat builders Richard Helmke, and Richard and Ralph Stanley and others will discuss how a 108-square-mile island’s boat designers can cater to the summer residents, the lobstermen and commercial fishermen still plying the waters just offshore, and everyone in between. At the Penobscot Marine Museum’s Main Street Gallery, Route 1, Searsport, Maine. Tickets: $8 members and $10 non-members. FMI: visit or call 207-548-2529 or -0334.
