Out and About with the Back Cove Family:
|Back Cove is proud of our close-knit community here in midcoast Maine, and we’re especially proud of our young men and women. In 2017 we plan to continue our involvement with local educational programs including the JMG organization, a nonprofit that offers education and support to young adults as they transfer through high school and on to undergraduate studies and/or successful career pathways.|
|We also have a full lineup of community events this coming year, including the Rockland Main Street Summer Solstice Festival, and the Maine Lobster Festival Parade! – Keep an eye out on Facebook and Instagram for more updates.|
Celebrating our Craftspeople:
Followers of this blog will know that last year we introduced our ‘Work-iversary’ series, where we interview craftspeople reaching anniversary milestones with Back Cove. This year is a special year for this project, and here’s why:
- We will celebrate twelve ‘Work-iversaries’ in 2017.
- Those milestones will range from five years to twenty-five years, representing a twenty-year spread.
- The average tenure of craftspeople celebrating anniversaries this year is eleven-and-a-half years.
- Finally, these associates represent a combined total of one hundred and thirty-five years of boatbuilding experience at Back Cove Yachts.
If that doesn’t blow you away, you need to re-read the list! We couldn’t be more proud of our associates, they are the heart and soul of Back Cove Yachts, and we’re so excited to celebrate with them.
