What Goes Into a Modern Maine Boat?

A boat that is emblematic of the high caliber of Maine boatbuilding, the Back Cove 34, was taken off the production line and put on display without its deck or superstructure. All the critical yet unseen components that make for pleasurable afternoons on the water were exposed: the gleaming engines, the propulsion system, the tankage array, and what appeared to be miles of wiring.
