Event description
Special guest Mark Snow describes the risks and rewards for Maine sailors in the days of sail and steam.

About this Event

As long as there have been sailors and shipowners, there has always been a rough bargain struck between them to balance competing objectives:  making a profit for the owners while managing the risk to the mariners so that everyone comes back again in one piece.  Special guest Mark Snow will give us an insider’s view of the bargains struck by two Maine sailors, one from 1841 and one from 1911, to show us how the contours of the sailor’s bargain changed over the course of the 19th Century.   $12 ticket includes a $2 donation to Preble Street, a themed cocktail and lots of obscure facts.
