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."

ON AN EVEN KEEL

When our lives are running smoothly, we're "on an even keel." Seagoing vessels, too, must be loaded in balance, to prevent capsizing ( rolling over ) in a heavy sea. Stevedores are responsible for the safe loading of cargo into ships.
