We are pleased to have Steve continue for his 7th season doing CBI at Toddy. He lives within walking distance of the landing and keeps an eye on things even when off-duty. CBI helps support his lobstering activities but we know Stephen loves his job ( and the sun too). He probably knows 95% of the boaters including people he knew from working at the Bucksport mill for over 45 years.
This is Ed’s second summer doing Courtesy Boat Inspection, having worked at the Silver Lake Program which TPA initiated in 2022. Ed is no stranger to boats. Semi-retired now, he is still a master captain for the U.S. Merchant Marine for vessels up to 100 tons, but glad to wind down from that kind of responsibility to making sure boats are clean before entering Toddy. Ed lives on the Bagaduce River in Penobscot and believes in giving back to the community.
Lucy Leaf has been CBI coordinator for several years, following two seasons as a boat inspector herself at the Toddy landing. She has also done inspections and training county-wide, working with Hancock County Soil & Water. Lucy initiated and coordinated a paid CBI program at Silver Lake in 2022 which continues now and is currently developing a volunteer program at Lower Patten Pond. She will also be filling in gaps at the Toddy landing while building sustainability into future years.
David joined the CBI team this year to provide additional coverage after TPA received a generous donation to expand the program.. David is a blue blood Mainer, growing up near Jones Pond in Gouldsboro and working on his family’s lobster boats throughout his youth. He worked in the yacht building industry at numerous boatyards for 42 years. Now retired, he continues to be very active with his church community, enjoys being with his grandchildren, fishes when he can and hunts in the fall.
