There are a lot of "apps" available for smart phones but here's one that is terrific for the mariner. Class of '79 Bill Earle and his associate at BBN/Rayetheon came up with this free Android app for voyage planning. Bill and his associate would like to get some feedback on the app so download it, have fun with it, and let him know how well it works for you - firstname.lastname@example.org …

Thank you for welcoming me! I am so glad to be a member of this community and thrilled to find somewhere to connect with former members of the Tabor Boy crew. I will definitely post some pictures as soon as I am able.
West Pont not Kings Point. Capt G did urge me toward Kings Point, but I'd wanted to go to West since I was twelve. Tabor was/is a naval honors school and i got an appointment through that program. Course Vietnam was just heating up around then so they were taking anybody. The rest is history.
I don't know why it took me so long to see your message and to reply to you! All is well on this end, here in rural New Mexico! I remember you, our crew mates, and our time together, very well. And I remember how stormy that trip was to Bermuda, early in the summer of '77! A good handful of years afterward, I bumped into Pete Mello in Providence and had a nice time catching up with him. It's wonderful what he's done. Bill Rose has recently visited me here in New Mexico, I'm very glad to say. Our experience together on Tabor Boy was nothing short of priceless. It was mind boggling how relatively few students took advantage of it. Perhaps, however, what the others didn't know, was a blessing for us, who did!!

Hope this finds you well. Been a long time since i was on here last...
Let's catch up! 504-495-9750 email@example.com
It certainly is a challenging year, but I'm looking at it as an opportunity to shape the program to be something students continue to love. We all love Cap so much, and I miss sailing with him every day more than I can express. It is because of Cap's dedication in training us that we are able to adapt and function well under all these new circumstances.
You'll be happy to know that Capt. Jay is a very qualified, very kind man, and he is up for the task as well.
I'm happy for you and everyone who has gotten to sail on Tabor Boy. Schooner Crew is truly a family.
I agree with the comment that the Tabor Boy changed, influenced many lives. Personally after college I started down a pretty standard and boring path in construction management. From my experience on the Tabor Boy, I learned what really made me happy was the hands on aspect of construction. Not to bore you with a long history, I will just mention that I am still at it and will be moving a slave cabin 10 miles this spring. And, that is fun.
In addition, I am signing up for an American Sailing Association program to refresh my knowlege of navigation, maintenance, etc.
We were the lucky ones at Tabor when we signed on the Tabor Boy for our sport.
Thanks, Jamie. There is a Robert Perry Fan Group on Facebook you might want to join since he designed your Valiant 42, which is fine yacht.
That's what I hear. The old wharf is now luxury condos. Well they aren't making any more land there.
