"1600: Sept 06, 2015, Falmouth Maine, off handy boat in the mooring field, East of can 15, my wife Mary spotted what I believe to have been a Mola Mola. We watched its fin flop sideways and swim slowly for about 15 minutes as it moved maybe 50 yards." Dennis Hattie, SPLASHDANCER
"On behalf of my students, I would like to thank you for the use of A Handy Boat launch and Myles Everett on Wednesday June 3rd. Working with University of New England scientist-in-residence, students in my MAKE class have been designing ocean drifters. Wednesday's outing gave us a chance to test the drifters for performance in a real-world setting. Support for education such as this is an example of how fortunate Falmouth students are and what makes the Falmouth schools so successful." John L. Kraljic - Falmouth High School
"We brought our Ohlson 38 from Wisconsin to Handy Boat to complete a re-fit for our first Atlantic Crossing. We had many varied needs and Handy Boat was very flexible in helping us meet them. Handy Boat is a special place with the charms of an old time boatyard and the conveniences of the modern world."
"This is our first visit to Handy Boat but we will definitely be back. The people couldn't be nicer and more helpful. The free launch service is fantastic with very short wait times and very good, friendly drivers. The mooring field is huge and protected from all but SW winds when it can get choppy. It's a beautiful spot and very handy to Portland if you have a car. The shore facilities are top notch otherwise, with good rest rooms and showers and laundry and an excellent restaurant with indoor and outdoor dining." Robie, East Greenwich, R.I.
"The recent renovations to the property have made this into a first class marina. This year they have put in additional dock space which will allow them to accommodate more boats and those with "deep" drafts. Sorry to say that The Boathouse chandlery has closed but the Ace Hardware store in Falmouth now has a boating section with a fair selection of marine products. Also, West Marine and Hamiltons Marine have stores in downtown Portland." Bill49, Cumberland
"We always visit Handy Boat when cruising Maine. Handy is located conveniently for cruising Casco Bay and visiting Portland (by car). Handy has a large mooring field, two launches, a nice restaurant/bar, ships store and fuel. They can haul and repair your boat. Short hop to Little Diamond Island, Jewell, the Goslings and many more great anchorages." Bob and Madeline, Kingman Yacht Center Cataumet, MA
