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.
