Last Sunday, my former shipmate Jamie Hutton XO '79 (who grew up to be a NOAA engineer) gave my son Luke and I a tour of NOAA Ship Henry B. Bigelow while she was dockside at the Naval Station Newport. Here's a slideshow of a few photos that I took which you can also view in more detail with
Jamie's comments on Flickr.com. Hopefully Jamie will also add a few comments to this post…
If you happen to be flying through Providence Green Airport, take a walk down just beyond Gate 7 to the Block Island Pub and take a look at their poster in front and at cover of their menu. There is a beautiful shot of the TABOR BOY with sails set.
