Dear Captain Spear,
You had a keen eye on the waterfront traffic in Rockland for many a year, let alone the fact you were well-able to navigate outside the breakwater thus into international waters; you'd paid your dues to get the longstanding job in the Ferry Service. Your knowledge of the vessels anchored and traversing, the harbor depths, the routes to the islands, the characters of the old Rockland waterfront, the natives and the complaints, and the politics in Augusta; you were steadfast in making Rockland one of the safest and accessible harbors that boats of the Ferry Service for all mariners, from fisherman to super yachts; you had a part in it that set the stage for the future.
God Bless. May Eight Bells Ring in your honor on this last watch.
