Correct.  Maritime is considered Rockland, and Bryan's Body and fender, only a couple hundred feet up the road is in Thomaston.  That is roughly where the line is.

Just because Rockland doesn't want to lose WalMart is no reason to go shoving the town line nearly three miles west along route 1.   Beth, please double check  your map and correct your photo comment.
