Licensed for many years by the U.S. Coast Guard as “Master of Motor, Steam, and Auxiliary Sail Vessels of not-more-than-200-tons upon All Oceans,” Bolster continues to mess about in boats. He earned his undergraduate degree at Trinity College, his MA from Brown University, and his PhD from Johns Hopkins University. He lives with his wife Molly in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, and when not in Plymouth they can likely be found sailing their Valiant 40, Chanticleer, to the Caribbean.
