Life aboard the Mabel  



TREMONT — As a teenagerCallie Gothard spent two years living onboard a 58foot Camden schooner with her parents, two siblings, a cat and a dog. Moored in Camden Harbor, the family spent idyllic summers cruising along the Maine coast and winters hunkered down at the wharf, hoping it wouldn’t get too icy to prevent them from reaching the wharf ladder to get to the Rockland school where her dad was a principal, where her mom was a teacher and where she and her siblings attended classes. 

Gothard will be talking about her experiences growing up aboard the Mabel at the Tremont Historical Society’s annual meeting, Tuesday, July 28at 5 p.m. via Zoom.
