A collaborative design between Benoit’s Design Co. and the Maine Island Trail Association, this unique coastal map represents the original length of the Maine Island Trail at its inception in 1988, from Casco Bay to Englishman Bay. The map also features the enduring words of MITA’s late founder, Dave Getchell: For those in small craft seeking superb boating and solitude, an island trail along some of the world's most beautiful coastline may be just what they are looking for.
Benoit’s Design Co. uniquely modern silhouette of the coast and its waterways is the perfect art piece to depict this recreational water trail. Benoit’s hand paints a birch wall art panel in one of their color options. Then engrave the art into the panel, revealing the beautiful wood grain for land while leaving the pristine painted surface to create the contrast of the water.
This Laser Engraved Coastal Map highlights MITA’s original beginning and is a celebratory piece of a place that holds a lot of memories. A true gift that stands the test of time. Add a personal touch with our Map Markers to call out those special places near and dear. Each map includes a set of three small waypoints, cut from solid walnut: a house, a heart, and a classic waypoint symbol. Should you want to highlight a specific place of interest on the panel, simply dab a bit of glue (not included) on the waypoint of your choosing and affix it to the desired location.
Each map is ready to hang out of the box.
