Feature article on the Waymouth Project, an attempt to recreate the earliest English exploration of Midcoast Maine, which is credited to Captain George Waymouth in 1605. On one of what Waymouth called the Saint George Isles, almost certainly Burnt Island, just inshore of Monhegan, the captain's men built a swift longboat they called the Light Horseman. The Waymouth Project partners, which includes a team of maritime historians, boatbuilders, and filmmakers, built a replica of the Light Horseman and tried to retrace Waymouth's path. The project includes a one-hour television documentary, "Captain Waymouth's River."
