People of the Coast: Donna and Marsden Brewer of Stonington

One of the hallmarks of Maine fishermen is their ability to put their hands to the many things needed to make a living in a hard landscape. That means having versatility both in terms of skills and in terms of thinking. Donna and Marsden Brewer of Stonington are just such people. Marsden is a fourth-generation commercial lobsterman and scallop farmer who once was a seafood dealer. Donna was born into a shipping and sailing family from Castine. “My grandfather sailed five-masted schooners and taught navigation. My dad worked at sea on oil tankers and cargo ships,” she said.
