Fond Farewell to Don MacLeod

The Museum's Vessel Maintenance Assistant Don MacLeod's last day in the boat shop was yesterday. Don's off to The Landing School in Maine to learn more about the maritime trade of fixing boats. Don arrived at the Museum as a shipwright apprentice during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in 2003 and stayed for nine years! During his tenure here at the Museum, he was a wonderful ambassador, educating the public on wooden boatbuilding, and helping to maintain our floating fleet. He will be missed, but we wish him well in his future endeavors!
