Re: Mystic Seaportís Capt. George Moffett Passes at 67
Rest in Peace Captain Moffett. I, for one, will not forget you or the Schooner BRILLIANT.
I had the privilege of crewing aboard the BRILLIANT 3 times in my teens and George Moffett was my captain. The time spent aboard her are among my favorite experiences as a teenager, a big part of that was Captain Moffett. He was a good man.
I love the BRILLIANT so much I named my own boat after her. KIVALO is bastardized Hungarian for brilliant.
