    In Boothbay Harbor Sunday, Sept. 6, Trump supporters decorated their boats with banners and flags and paraded through the outer and inner harbor.

    Maine Women For Trump gathered more than 20 boats to form a flotilla around East Boothbay and Boothbay Harbor, according to MWFT member Elizabeth Printy. Vessels of all sizes were decked with flags, banners, signs and passengers to show solid support for the re-election of President Trump. The mariners came from near and far - some navigated to Boothbay while others hauled their boats on trailers. There were also supporters who were strategically fixed on land, waving flags and banners. The weather was spectacular.

    A major water support rally is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 19. Participants will gather at noon south of Tumbler Island. The parade begins at 1 p.m. For more information and to participate, call 841-0174.
