Michael Jacobson, W-72, Elsaesser Fellow
SEA Semester

SEA Semester alumnus Michael Jacobson (W-72), the recipient of the 2018 Armin E. Elsaesser III Fellowship award, recently traveled to southern Taiwan to document the indigenous Tao people’s traditional boat building and fishing culture.

I went to Taiwan and Orchid Island to learn about a tribal fishing boat and I came back deeply appreciative about how small the world is, how generous and wonderful people are, and a sense of awe for the indigenous people of Taiwan.

A model of the R/V Westward, built by SEA Captain Carl Chase in 1980, has been restored and returned to the Woods Hole campus.

The model was built as a training tool to teach SEA Semester students about sail setting and striking and was used in class for many years.  Now Carl has completed the model’s “38-year refit” on the same workbench in his shop where he originally built it!
