A LOBSTERMAN’S WEB SEARCH HELPS HIM REPOWER BOAT

Here's some Yankee ingenuity along with the power of the internet !

 

When Beverly Johnson and David Hill founded Chebeague.net, Chebeague Island’s internet provider, their primary goal was to provide islanders with a faster alternative to dial up. Little did they know it would become an important tool for lobstermen.

Lobstermen use the internet to call home, receive lobster orders, check the weather, and pin down lobster prices. And for Chris Rich, a search engine was integral in his quest to rebuild a 30-year-old boat engine. 

Rich, 57, a life-long island resident, is a gifted generalist who can do just about anything from speaking Icelandic to building a house and a lobster boat.
