Zumwalt sea trials about to start; spectators hoping to catch sight of Navy’s newest ship.
Zumwalt sea trials may draw watchers along Kennebec River
“BATH — As the Zumwalt (DDG 1000) goes out for sea trials next week, local residents may try to get a glimpse of the 15,760-ton vessel as it leaves Bath Iron Works.
Brian Murray, park manager at Popham Beach State Park, said people have often flocked to the beach to watch ship movements in the past.
‘People come out and watch the launches go out,’ Murray said on Wednesday. ‘There’s a pretty good crowd, and … it’s usually at Fort Popham. Sometimes they take pictures.’”
