Abstract

Professor Warren Riess of the University of Maine used to recover artifacts from Maine shipwrecks as a budding maritime archaeologist 30 years ago. Many visible shipwreck hulks are now gone. The landmark "Hesper" and "Luther Little" schooners off Wiscasset were hauled away in 1998. Of wrecks still visible, the most intact is the "Cora F. Cressy" schooner, which serves as a breakwater for the Bremen Lobster Pound and is best viewed from the Todd Wildlife Sanctuary. The remains of several old schooners can be viewed from Mill Cove in Boothbay Harbor, including the "Edna B. McKnight." The Casco Bay Lines mailboat travels by several wrecks that are visible at low tide. The steel tugboat, the "D.T. Sheridan," is spread across the rocks in Monhegan Island's Lobster Cove. With details on the ships, their fates, and museum exhibits of fragments of Maine shipwrecks.
