Introduction



The mission of GulfQuest National Maritime Museum of the Gulf of Mexico is "to inspire people of all ages and backgrounds to understand and appreciate the Gulf Coast�s rich maritime heritage through exhibits, programs and activities."

MISS THE BOAT

We "miss the boat" when we arrive too late to be of any use. In port, if a sailor missed the boat sent to return him to his ship, he was considered absent without leave, and therefore in serious trouble.
