Frank Y. “Pete” McFarland, Jr.
Frank Y. “Pete” McFarland, Jr. was a boat builder from a family of boat builders. Starting at the age of nine, he worked on just about every phase of boat building, drafting and design, caulking, and more. He first worked in Damariscotta, but later moved to South Bristol where he worked for most of his adult life. He also managed a boatyard for many years and worked from time to time dragging for scallops. Everyone called him “Pete” because he hated the nickname “Junior.”
