Great Harbor bill endorsed

CRANBERRY ISLES — The town’s Board of Selectmen has endorsed a bill before the Legislature that would designate Great Harbor — the waters between Mount Desert Island and the Cranberry Isles — as a small vessel sanctuary.

Rep. Brian Hubbell of Bar Harbor introduced the bill, which would ban cruise ships and other large commercial vessels from Great Harbor. The Legislature’s transportation committee held a public hearing on the bill last month but has not yet scheduled a work session and vote.
