Everyone is invited to join host Gordon Bok for the seventh presentation of Working on the Water, a gathering of fishermen and mariners, Saturday, Nov. 12, at 1 p.m. at the Sail, Power & Steam Museum, 75 Mechanic St.

Men and women who work, or have worked, on the water will share their experiences through original songs, stories and poetry. Patterned after the highly successful West Coast FisherPoets Gathering, this event has been so well received it has spawned a similar event in Portland hosted by the Maine Maritime Museum.

This year’s presenters will be Stefanie Alley, lobsterman and poet; Sharon Daley, RN, from the island mission vessel Sunbeam; Capt. Dave Gelinas of the Penobscot Bay & River Pilots Association; Capt. Annie Mahle of the schooner J & E Riggin; Capt. Kendall Morse, whose humor also includes his years with the United States Coast Guard and the U.S. Fish & Wildlife service; Bill Page, who knows wooden boats from the ground up; and Capt. Bill Zuber, who recently retired from working on the island transporter Reliance. There might even be time for a song or two from Bok.

Admission is $5, free for children younger than 12. For more information, visit gordonbok.com or call 236-2707.
