    I gave this subject some thought before my leg from the Vineyard to
    New Bedford.  I chose to wear my late grandfather's train conductor
    hat, which he always wore when sailing.  I also packed a sea bag that
    I acquired as a deck hand aboard the J-Class yacht Endeavour.  I was
    fortunate enough to land that summer job in 1990 when I was 16.  It
    was my first time away from home, and as it happens, my first sail was
    from Newport to New Bedford harbor where Endeavour spent a few nights
    hauled out at Fairhaven shipyard, not far from where the Morgan spent
    her last years before moving over to Round Hill in South Dartmouth.
