Panbo editor, publisher & chief bottlewasher from 4/2005 until 8/2018, and now pleased to have Ben Stein as a very able publisher, webmaster, and editing colleague. Please don't regard him as an "expert"; he's getting quite old and thinks that "fadiddling fumble-putz" is a more accurate description.

    Thanks for posting that awesome Boutilier photo.
    Of course, I’ve had more than a few comments around town and up at the Penobscot Marine Museum. I look forward to sending you more, as I complete scanning the last 5,000 negs this summer

    The radio is a GE business mobile radio that first came out in early 60’s. For that day, it was quite reliable and easy to repair. Just find the cold vacuum tube (35 cents), replace and give a bill for $25. This radio may have 2 channels.

    The man on the radio of the Delca is Clyde Peabody. Clyde and his brother Milford Peabody ran the Delca for Port Clyde Packing Co. until the fall of 1967 when Clyde transfered to the purse seiner Ocean Delight.From then to the mid to late 1970’s Milford and his son Bertrom Peabody ran the Delca.
    Some of the Port Clyde Packing co. Boats were registered under Pauline Fisheries,a sub. of Port Clyde Packing.
