Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve been trying to think of what to write to inform every one of the sale of the boat, and the closing of Captain John’s Fishing & Cruising in Keyport. In all honesty, I have been dreading this moment and putting it off because I am having a very hard time saying goodbye to John. Perhaps it has been easier to hide from the finality of it all by maybe ignoring reality, but as difficult as this is, I guess it is time. With that being said, I am just going to type away… Each season we would look forward to bringing the boat back to the dock in the Keyport. The community was always very welcoming and we appreciated all the people who would take time out of their day to come down to say hello. With that time of year approaching, I must sadly announce that following the untimely passing of Captain John on January 29th, the decision was made to sell the boat and close the business. Whether you sailed with us once or became a regular over the years, I can not say thank you enough. Your business was very much valued and appreciated. One of the first things John said to me when I started working for him was, "I don't care how much you know about fishing. What I care about is how you treat our customers. Always be polite, courteous and treat everyone with respect." That's was John, and I hope that is how he and his business will be remembered. No one did it better! In closing, I would like to say from the bottom of my heart, and on behalf of the entire Captain John crew, both past and present, Thank You for 29 great years of business.
