WCSH: A Searsport [Maine] District High School course is teaching students problem solving skills and maintaining the tradition of boatbuilding.

“To have a new generation of young people involved in the maritime field is just super….To have them get excited about maritime [tradition]. Who knows where it will lead?” says Wayne Hamilton, owner of Hamilton Marine.
