Bangor Daily News: The protected coves of the Pine Tree State have a storied history as the place to build elegant, traditional wooden sailing ships such as sloops and schooners.

At Front Street Shipyard in Belfast, Maine, a different kind of vessel soon will be taking shape: a high-performance catamaran patrol boat, complete with mounts at the bow where long-range weapons can be installed. The T30 boats, designed by a Virginia firm, are being constructed for Toronto- and Newport, Rhode Island-based Trefoil Marine. The first patrol boats should be rolled out of the shipyard this spring, with their ultimate destinations located all over the world.
