Staff changes at Front Street Shipyard

Front Street Shipyard’s longtime project manager Mike King retired recently to become a real estate agent in Belfast, Maine, where the shipyard is located.

King had supervised some of the shipyard’s most comprehensive refits over the past few years, and the company said it hopes to bring him back for special projects.

Paul Lamoureux, formerly a service manager at the shipyard, is now project manager.
