The other Day it dawned on me that you all are Captains of various size vessels, we find our selves being in charge of boats.That being the case we all have a tremendous responsibility, our burden is not to be taken lightly.
Our knowledge of the sea is extensive.
There are those who may *be new to boating *and face an enormouse learning curve.
The Trawlerform we subscribe to is a great class room supported by great teachers ready and waiting *to offer advice an consultation on thousands of marine topics .
I am honored *to be included in the Fraternity
May i dedicate this poem to*Captain Marin C. Faure for his contribution to the Trawlerforum.
When we build, Let us think that we build for ever.
Let it not be for present delight nor present use alone .
Let it be such work as our descendants will thank us for ;
and let us think, as we lay stone on stone, that a time is to come when
those stones will be held sacred
because our hands have touched
them, and men will say as they look upon the labor and
wrought substance of them
"See this our Father did for us ."
