Happy birthday Lowell’s Boat Shop!

The Deer Island Skiff

Nice article in the Newburyport (MA) Daily News on Lowell’s Boat Shop, which turns 215 – that would be two hundred and fifteen years old – on May 5. Not impressed yet? Chew on this: This makes it the oldest continuously operating boat shop in the U S of A. Not yet? The founder, Simeon Lowell, invented the dory. Invented. The. Dory. My friends, we are talking about some hallowed ground. Keep it up, Lowell’s!
