Thanks for the call and the information. I recently received this from the group:
>>Our organization meets every Thursday at the CC's on Esplanade - 6:30 to 8 covering agenda items and 8-9 chatting. Please feel free to stop by anytime. We're the ones dropping words like square rigged and business plan... The only exception to this schedule is when it is sea shanty night at the Irish House (May 10th is the next one). On those nights we meet there...
As you can see, I think this may turn into an interest group who go ouit drinking and discuss the "idea" of bringing a schooner to New Orleans. I'll let you know. Thank again for the help. Regards, Jonathan
I'm here in New Orleans as Gulf Coast V.P. for MEBA, big shot!! Anyhow, I have hooked up with a group, New Orleans Maritime Heritage Foundation, and they are interested in bringing a tall ship to NOLA. nolatallship.org just got established fall 2011, I was a fund raiser last night and thought of you. I have no idea what it takes whether they purchase or build, for them to make it happpen. Please give me a call at 504-495-9750 because I woulf like to pick your brain on the topic. Look forward to hearing from you.
Just read that you are a graduate of Maine Maritime '82. I am currently a senior at Tabor and the port watch officer aboard Tabor Boy. Next year I will be matriculating into Maine Maritime Academy's class of 2014. I will be entering their Small Vessel Operations program (SVO) which I am not sure if they had when you were there but it is kind of a big deal up there now. The program is a 500 ton program which specializes in sailing endorsements and sail training in general aboard the schooner Bowdoin. I am proud to enter into what seems to be a noble maritime tradition both coming from Tabor and going into Maine Maritime.
Hey Dirt Bag,
I was on John Lincoln’s page and saw your letter:

How are thing there in Fairhaven? Sorry we were never able to get together while you were in Norfolk. NIT is an in/out terminal, 12 hours at the most. How old are your kids now? I hope to be up that way sometime next summer. Hoping to take my folks/family on a Maine Schonner cruise. Know and old sailing friend, Dana Woodruff. She is now the MEBA branch agent in Houston. Going thu the pictures was entertaining, my how we all look different!
