Historic Rockland Schooner “Renamed”

Knox Village Soup: Adam and Katie McKinlay are taking the helm of one of Rockland’s historic schooners, becoming the next generation to sail passengers around Penobscot Bay and beyond.

The McKinlays purchased the 99′ Isaac H. Evans in November 2017 from Capt. Brenda Thomas. Thomas had owned and captained the Evans since 1999 when she purchased it from Capt. Ed Glaser.

The McKinlays renamed the vessel the Boyd N. Sheppard, which was the 1886-built vessel’s original name.
