The Portland, Maine Coaster is made by Tracy in her home studio outside of Bangor. This coaster features a chart map of Portland, Maine and covers areas from Pine Point in Scarborough to the southern islands of Casco Bay like Great Diamond Island and Peaks Island. Nautical charts are used for navigational purposes, with information like longitude and latitude scales, topographical features, navigation aids such as lighthouses and radio beacons, water depth, indications of reefs, and warning notices. This allows both plotting a safe course and checking progress while sailing.
These are not only perfect for those who recognize the charts, or sail themselves, but they are a classic touch to any home and make great housewarming gifts (especially when paired with some glassware or Maine beer). The tumbled stone coasters are cork-backed making them non-slip and sturdy on your surface. Great for your summer cocktail on the deck or your warm cup of cocoa on a cold, Maine day.
