This Wednesday, Sept. 2, from 5 to 6 p.m. on WRFR’s Rockland Metro Show, Joe Steinberger will interview Captain Jim Sharp of Rockland’s Sail, Power and Steam Museum.

Born in Philadelphia in 1933, Captain Jim Sharp has spent a lifetime afloat. From “going down to the boat” with his father, he migrated from chartering in the Bahamas to becoming addicted to Maine traditional schooners as well as antique tugboats, freight vessels and European barges.

He has owned more than 30 elderly commercial marine conveyances and possesses an unquenchable bent for maritime preservation. Now, in questionable retirement, he is director and founder of the Sail Power and Steam museum of Sharp’s Point South in Rockland.

WRFR broadcasts on 93.3 FM in Rockland and 99.3 FM in Camden, and is live online at
