Favorite Tabor Boy moment
Difficult to choose just one of many wonderful experiences.

Wish I had discovered this website earlier. It's a great place to remember and share experiences at Tabor. Hard to believe that I graduated from Tabor over 50 years ago. Brother Ted was the engineer on Tabor Boy. He just retired after a very successful career as an engineer in the Merchant Marines. He is currently living in Washington state. Brother Houston (Dave) is also retired after a career with Microsoft. He currently lives in Prescott Valley, Arizona. I'll tell them both about this website and encourage them to join.

Welcome aboard Matt!

I remember Cap speaking of you on many occasions. I'm not sure that we ever met but I feel that I know you. I sailed aboard her from from freshman year to senior year ('79) when I was XO. Like you, I crewed aboard her for the Sea Ranger program and even crewed after college when we started the Caribbean program. 

Small world, I graduated from Maine Maritime Academy but later studied mechanical engineering at Clarkson. 

Again, welcome aboard! Please post any of the old photos that you may have.

Jamie
