Captaining Boat Tours in Alexandria Bay

Pat Comstock was born in 1875. By the time he was in his thirties, he was already a boat captain, became yacht captain for the Clark family, and eventually captained boat tours around the bay. Eventually, his son and grandsons would go on to work for the same boat line. John Comstock, Pat’s grandson, remembers his family’s work on the river.
