Hi folks
I know this topic is a strange one but i am writing a 10k word essay on the Harbour Master certification and qualification past and present. I am struggling to find anywhere any information about the history of the Harbour Master role. I understand traditionally the Harbour Master was usually from sea and from master job but that is about it and only from working in a port.
Can anyone provide any more info on this or any suggestions as to where to look for a bit more info on this topic? Google is proving useless on this occasion. :(

Thanks in advance

I can't think of any internet sites that might help, but why not go to your nearest port/harbour and have a chat with the Harbour Master

Would suggest you PM Mail:


Capt.Phil Devitt: (SKIPPER)
Harbour Master: Kinsale.


Will look up his actual e.mail address and ask also further.

Ashley, Keiths suggestion seems the best bet, but if you get stuck I will try a old boy from the "Indefatigable" He is a member of the "Indefatigable Old Boys Assoc" and is the current Harbour Master on the Isle of Man. Good Luck.
