Nautical Auction

Boothbay Harbor Shipyard joins with Boothbay Harbor SCSC (Shipyard Community Sailing Center) to hold the  4th Annual Nautical Auction.  All proceeds from the Auction will go to benefit Boothbay Region youth sailing opportunities.
The SCSC is an educational 501c3 charitable organization whose mission is to promote community sailing in the Boothbay Region.  This annual summer event will be in the Yard’s signature “yellow” shed.  The auction, to be held on Friday July 20th beginning at 5:00 PM, consists of a cash and carry table, a Silent Auction and a Live Auction beginning at 6 PM. There promises to be something for everyone!
The Nautical Auction Committee is seeking donations that should be in good condition and, however remote, be related to nautical categories including marine art and decorative items. To date, featured items include: ten 19th century framed nautical charts of mid-coast Maine, the eastern seaboard, South America and the Pacific; framed signed, remarked schooner prints by Earle Barlow; and 19th century ship building tools.
If you are interested in helping the Boothbay Harbor Shipyard and SCSC promote and support more sailing and boating opportunities for local youth, your marine related item(s) can be dropped off at the Boothbay Harbor Shipyard between 8:00 AM and 3:00 PM Monday - Friday.  Please call the Shipyard at 633-3171  before dropping off your item(s) Early donations are desired so they can be catalogued and publicized.  The Committee request that all donations  be brought to the Shipyard on or before Monday July 16th.  Any questions about suitability of donations or for pick- up of items, please call the Nautical Auction organizers: Pauline Dion at 633-2012 or Chuck Koch at 633-4776.
