Article on the changes and development pressures brought about by the influx of out-of-staters buying up coastal Maine land. Winter Harbor fisherman Bill Crowe, who edits the "Fisherman's Voice" newsletter, said the changes are particularly bad in Maine because of the direct conflict between traditional waterfront/shoreline access and new landowners' inflexibility. Maine humorist Tim Sample witnessed the near disappearance of commercial fishing activity in his hometown of Boothbay Harbor as a result of the town's emphasis on tourism. With comments by Colin Woodard, author of "The Lobster Coast;" and Elizabeth Sheehan, fisheries project director of Coastal Enterprises, Inc.; and Charles Colgan, a public-policy and management professor at the University of Southern Maine.
