Sunapee, N.H. — The Sunapee Gardeners invites the public to a presentation by Tim Fenton about the history, sinking and restoration of the MV Kearsarge. The program will be held on Tuesday, June 10, at 7 p.m., at the Knowlton House, 63 Main Street, Sunapee Harbor.
The Fenton family operates both the MV Kearsarge, a restaurant boat, and its sister ship, the MV Mt. Sunapee II, a tour boat. The boats run out of Sunapee Harbor.
The Kearsarge partially sank while moored at the Sunapee Town Dock in January 2013. After a complete renovation— four months of work—the popular dinner boat was back in service cruising Lake Sunapee.
