Must ‘Sea’ Movie

Scene from The Boat Builder

The Boat Builder tells the story of an old salt named Abner (played by Christopher Lloyd, known best for his role as Jim from Taxi) who lives in Maine and is a curmudgeon in every sense of the word; the only thing that really brings him joy is building and tinkering with a sailboat in his yard (hey, it’s not a stereotype if it’s true).

Boatyard Rhythms

Leaving the idyllic village of Stonington, Maine, in our rearview mirror, driving down West Main Street past Allen Cove, my wife, Lindsay, spotted Billings Diesel and Marine beyond the driver’s side window. In an instant, I was like a dog with two tails. I had never visited Billings, but knew of the yard’s reputation for being a salty, serious working yard. Now I could see the huge, shingled shed stretching across the cove beyond the morning fog. For me, a surprise discovery like this is akin to a four-year-old’s virgin sighting of the Magic Kingdom.

Stomping Out Ocean Pollution with New Shoes

Created as part of a partnership between the German sneaker manufacturer and a conservation group called Parley for the Oceans, the shoes are the first to be made completely from pollution from the ocean. According to Adidas, the upper is made from yarns and filaments from plastic waste (including offshore gillnets) and the base is made from a “sustainable cushioning material.”
