Cap, you will be missed.


You wore more hats than anyone I’ve known…


at the Seaport and elsewhere on the river and the coast.

I’ve many fond memories of Don, although he frightened me at first. One, sailing under the Verrazano with a group of visually impaired kids, he suggested they all clap to hear the echo of the roadbed 217 feet above; once they began hearing the echo and clapping with more excitement, his face had every bit as much pleasure as theirs.

Another: Don’s safety speech to passengers: “Every boat has two sides, the wet side and the dry side. Rule #1 Stay on the dry side. Rule #2 Stay on the dry side even if you want to rescue some poor soul who messed up on Rule #1.

Fair winds, Don.
