Ferry Schedule, Islesboro, 1961


This is a tri-fold ferry schedule for Islesboro's second ferry, the Governor Muskie. This image shows the schedule laid open and flat.

The Muskie was built after the Maine State Ferry Service was established and took over from the Town of Islesboro, building a new pen and ramp system. The Governor Muskie was built by the Wiley Manufacturing Company, Port DePosit, MD. It could hold twenty-four vehicles, was 119.4 feet long, had a 40 foot beam, and had a 560 hp engine. The Governor Muskie began service to Islesboro in 1959 and was replaced by the Margaret Chase Smith Ferry in 1987.
