My Dad and Harold were chums while they were growing up in the Greater Weymouth Area of Nova Scotiai the 20's and 30's. Fast forward to the mid-60's when Dad and Mom took our family to PEI for a summertime tenting vacation. While sailing to PEI on the ABEGWAIT-of-the-day Harold, who was Chief at the time, took Dad and I on a tour of the Engine Room. Even though I understood nothing of what I saw or heard the impression I was left with from that tour was, "THIS is where the action is!" I was not wrong.
