From the Niagara Falls Review:
His first time out, Malcolm Bunting kept thinking that it goes against all common sense and seamanship to go toward a waterfall of that size.
He did it anyway.
That was 36 years ago.
The giant waterfall was the Horseshoe Falls and his job was with the Maid of the Mist Steamboat Company.
“I had never carried passengers before and I kept thinking, ‘Oh my God, what am I doing here.’ Over the years you get used to it and it becomes routine,” said Cpt. Bunting.
The 63-year-old retired Wednesday night after making his final trip.
