Default New Shorex in Bar Harbor: Get Married

There's news from Bar Harbor that weddings are up significantly due to an increase in cruise ship traffic, the elimination of a waiting period, and the 2012 legalization of same sex marriage. Seems it's now commonplace for cruisers to beat feet to a Notary to legalize their "Maine Event" and tie the knot before sail away. The appeal is especially great for same sex couples from the diminishing number of states where that sort of thing is still verboten. Here's the full story:

Has anybody ever looked into whether ship captains can perform same sex marriages?
