Abstract

Article on the fate of the 70-foot wooden schooner "Harriet A. Robinson," which is beached in a corner of the South Portland Shipyard. Launched out of Kennebunkport in 1937, for years the Robinson ferried boats up the Kennebunk River. Later, it became the year-round home to Robert McBain, a fixture of the DiMillo's area of Portland Harbor for over 20 years. Following McBain's death a year and a half ago, the boat was "sold for a dollar" to a man who docked it at South Portland Shipyard. Heading out of Portland, the boat sank and was left to the sea, leaving its fate in the hands of Eric Pearce, Portland harbor master. Pearce believes the boat will most likely have to be destroyed within weeks.
