Capt. Kevin McDonough has been navigating these waters for 47 years. A big congratulations and thanks from friends and visitors alike for all he has done and keeping us safe.
Keep it on the down-low, QT, but his party is Saturday, Sept. 9th, 4-7 pm or whenever at the BI boat dock - be sure to be there to wish him well as he sails into retirement.
Although food and drinks are provided, I am bringing my End of Summer rum drink that is sure to turn your teeth brown and your hair white. Or, is it the other way around? - come and see for yourself. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Me thinks they were trying to keep the BI Pirate from coming over to BI for a free party.

I would like to have thanked Kevin personally for transporting me back and forth to Beaver Island for 37 years. He was always pleasant and efficient in his dealing with the public. We will miss him. I wish you to have the great retirement you deserve. I cannot make your retirement party tomorrow, but I hope the BI Pirate hoists one for me. Very Happy
