Back in 2008, I read an article in the NY Times about some “Working Harbor Committee” and their tours around NY Harbor. I quickly checked it out on-line and signed up for a trip… Phyllis and I were hooked, and to date we made every trip we could.

Capt John Doswell’s narration will be missed… ”On the Hip, Port, Starboard, in push gear”, and let’s not forget the Hughes Barge “fireworks” story in Erie Basin. Fair winds Dos, you will be missed.
