Today we welcome newly appointed Port Captain Mark Clymer. Here he shares a little about his boating experiences... I have been a year-round resident of Clark Twp. the unit of government covering the Les Cheneaux Islands, Mich. (H-81), and the communities of Cedarville & Hessel, Mich. since 1974. My wife and I now live in a log cabin on McKay Bay, where Kimow II is moored. Spending summers on Marquette Island meant learning a respect for both water and piloting boats at an early age. I have been a member of the Les Cheneaux Yacht Club since 1986. Volunteer positions have included: the Les Cheneaux Antique Wooden Boat Show - Docking Committee Chair, Cochair & Judge; the Les Cheneaux Islands Association - President, Director; and the Lake Huron Fisheries Advisory Committee (IJC/MDNR) - Committee Member. I’m also currently a member of the Great Lakes Islands Alliance, the Sault Region Area Maritime Security Committee, and the Three Shores Cooperative Invasive Species Management Area (CISMA). When you see him, please congratulate and thank him for his dedication!
