The North Shore Frogmen will be hosting a presentation by Ryan Robbins on the documentary film project, “Sunken Steamboats of Moosehead Lake”. This film project is currently in production, under the guidance of Director Ryan Robbins, in partnership with the Moosehead Marine Museum and Moosehead Lake Divers, with the support of the Moosehead Historical Society.
We look forward to Ryan visiting our club to give this presentation and invite Froggies, friends, and guests to join us.
Ryan grew up on the shores of Moosehead Lake, and witnessed the restoration of the steamship Katahdin. His curiosity was seeded when he was invited aboard to watch the work being done and hearing stories of the old steamships, the great Mount Kineo resort, and the realization that this remote area was once the edge of civilization where the wealthy and sometimes famous came to play. After moving away to go to school and start a career, Ryan was able to take up SCUBA diving with the primary goal of fulfilling his childhood dream of seeing what the lake was hiding underwater. Upon surfacing from his very first Moosehead Lake dive on the Kineo steamer remain and feeling like Jacques Cousteau of the great north woods, he realized he wanted to use his skills to share with others the excitement of seeing what lies below. As he puts it, “real history you can see and touch exists on the bottom of Moosehead Lake.”
To think you could take a train from Boston, New York, or other big cities beyond and be dropped off in the middle of the wilderness, several hundred miles from anywhere…right at the water’s edge of Moosehead Lake, then take a steamboat to a grand 600-guest resort hotel in the midst of the Maine woods. In 1900 you could do this. Thousands of people escaped from the hustle, bustle, and heat of the cities to the wilderness of the Moosehead Lake Region – for the same reasons they do today. Now imagine over 25 steamboats cruising Moosehead Lake ferrying tourists, sportsmen, businessmen, and cargo, or even towing logs. What happened to all of them? While we can’t go back in time, we can visit the underwater remains of the steamboats, show their history, and tell the stories of those whose lives were impacted. By combining highdefinition underwater video, interviews, and historic images, this historical documentary tells the real-life tale of three sunken steamboats and what happened to them, while also providing an overview of steam-boating history on Moosehead Lake.
We hope you can join us on April 4th for this presentation. You can also find out more about this project and how you can support its production, at http://mooseheadsteamboats.com/.
About the Boston Sea Rovers
The Boston Sea Rovers is a 501C3 not for profit volunteer organization dedicated to increasing awareness and appreciation of the marine environment. We are one of the oldest and most distinguished underwater clubs in America , and have a worldwide reputation of excellence. While the membership has changed repeatedly over the years, we still hold true to a pledge that was inspired in 1954, and we remain dedicated to “Raising the Level of Knowledge of the Underwater World”. In order to achieve this lofty goal, the early members of the club designed and invented the first underwater film show available to the general public. They called that first production a Clinic, and we have held the event every year since.
The Clinic now comprises an entire weekend, which is typically the second full weekend in March. The event is held at the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel-Boston North Shore. The Clinic consists of a world renowned film festival where international underwater film makers present and premier their most recent works, over forty daytime seminars covering a wide variety of topics, workshops focused on hands-on training, and an exhibit hall filled with equipment, travel destinations, dive clubs, and more.
Come see us at Booth 31 & 31!
