MOOSABEC BOAT RACES:
“Two of the fastest contenders in the July 4th lobster boat races between Beals Island and Jonesport in the mid-1900s were the Thorobred and the Red Wing. Both were built in the 1930’s at Barney’s Cove, the Thorobred by Will Frost for Nathaniel Alley, the Red Wing by George Addington in Charles Henry Beal’s shop for Herman Beal. Both were built with torpedo sterns and measured 33 feet long and 7 ˝ feet wide. The Thorobred, whose ownership passed to George Witham, Floyd Beal, Esten Beal Jr., Chester Lenfestey, Roger Beal, Ralph Alley and Clinton Libby, died hauled out on the Alley’s Bay shore, Beals, about 1960. The Red Wing passed to Leon Alley, Lyman Alley, Joseph Alley, Bertram Peabody and Ellery Merchant before dying hauled out on Elsie’s Point, Beals, about 1960.”
