Pen Bay Pilot: Several towns, 2 islands, and the 2 cities on Penobscot Bay received state grants in varying amounts on January 29 to improve harbors for fishermen, ferries and recreational boaters. This includes building a new wave screen at Lincolnville Beach to calm waters, installing a fishermen’s hoist in Camden Harbor, adding floats and providing power to boats at Searsport Harbor, and adding skiff and dinghy dock space in Rockport, which will enable sinking 25 new moorings, which, in turn, is to drive more traffic to Rockport Village restaurants and stores.
