Maine Mission Vessel “Sunbeam” in Need of Repairs

The Mount Desert Islander reports that the steel-hulled vessel Sunbeam, the Maine Seacoast Mission vessel that delivers health care and other services to remote island communities on the coast of Maine, is in need of repairs.

The boat’s furnace and two generators need to be replaced, and the crew’s living quarters need an upgrade, according the MDI.

To address those and other needs, the Mission is conducting a special gift campaign to raise $1.5 million.
