American Promise

We borrowed the name American Promise from Dodge Morgan of Snow Island, Maine, who sailed a boat of that name around the world, non-stop, alone, in 1985.  When we wrote to ask his permission he didn’t respond for a few months, and then replied “you have probably gone well beyond the timing of this subject but I am just returned to land life from a half year of cruising.”   

Dodge passed away earlier this month at the age of 78.  His perseverance will be remembered.
