MAY 2018 • Issue #5 • Chebeague Island Council Calendar

Contents From the Island Council Notes from the Hall Island Commons News From the Town Office

On the Cover Many of you will recognize the boat on this month’s cover, the Susan Adams , named for Ernie Burgess’s wife Susan. This 36-foot wooden boat was built by Herb Rich in 1972, and Ernie has been its only owner. It has an Isuzu engine and a hydraulic trap hauler. Ernie says all the electronics “are right here in my head.” Ernie started fishing with his father, Alger Burgess, when he was about 10 years old and has kept it up for the past 65 years! And, yes, he still thinks the best thing about fishing is being out on the water. (Photo courtesy of Cathy MacNeill.)
