Welcome aboard! We may have met aboard the schooner during my reunion back in '09. It's great to see that you are headed to Maine Maritime. I graduated in '84 as an engineer and still look back very fondly to my time at Castine. Also, I have developed several life long friendships with many who attended the academy, two of which called me today. There are several of us that have graduated from both Tabor and MMA. I'm sure you know Cam Brien who's in his second year there.
James, please let me know if I can do anything for you while you are there. I still keep in contact with a couple of the faculty.
