John G. Mackay

One of the last people still around who grew up on the boats of Port Elgin harbour, John G. Mackay was born at 212 Green Street, near that harbour on November 14, 1936. He has been involved with the Southampton-based Marine Heritage Society for several years. Each summer he serves as one of their tour boat captains, glad that people can once again board a boat for a ride back in history to Chantry Island.
