Shipbuilding, a Noted Maine Industry, Steadily Declining.


The shipyards of Maine, a noted industry for many years, are fast going out of business. During the year recently closed a remarkable dullness prevailed, the record showing that less new tonnage was launched than in any previous year since the civil war. In only six of the 13 customs districts were vessels of any considerable size launched, and the entire output of the State, including the Peary Arctic ship Roosevelt, which cannot be classed as a merchant vessel, was less than is usually contributed by the single district of Bath. Various causes have brought about this slump in Maine wooden shipbuilding.


There is no demand for square-rigged vessels, and it is years since a yard was crossed on a Maine craft of any size, while the few square-riggers now flying the American flag are rapidly disappearing from the sea, several of Bath’s finest ships having been lost this year. Then too, the steel barge has come into better favor among ship owners, to the exclusion of the wooden vessel.


Only 16 vessels of any considerable size were launched from Maine last year. Then, too, the steel barge output showed a considerable loss, weight 13,771, net register. In 1904 the total was 41,972, the district of Bath alone contributing 23,327 tons, while no longer ago than1899 Bath’s new tonnage amounted to 40,009. At this rate Maine’s renowned industry will soon be a thing of the past.
