Steve Johnson’s boat, “Elizabeth” doesn’t need to haul another trap all season. That is, if the bounty for winning the Friendship, Maine Lobster Boat Races will provide enough for Steve to get through another winter in Maine. ‘Elizabeth’ is one of the prettier lobster boats, with her long sheer and nice lines. And then when the engine starts – her good looks are forgotten and her grumbling new engine makes her presence known and she is a force to be reckoned with on the water.
This great little video shows you the pride the lobstermen – all of them – have in their hard working boats. Maine is a great place for boating and for working on the water. And apparently for playing on the water, too.
