Capt. Mike Burke's first wife's name
Does anyone know Mike Burke's first wife's name? This would be prior to 1955?
Mrs. Burke is a good start, but I am looking for a name and if you really know maybe you can tell me her maiden name too. Thanks.

I believe it is June - the same as Danny's wife.

Capt. Burke's first wife
According to the book Barefoot Pirate, her name was Jackie Hoge, "...a ravishing young model for the Ford Agency..." They were married in 1946. Mike married second wife Barbara "June" Tuttle in 1955.

Sigh. Sure miss Windjammer! Loved the Flying Cloud. Oldest DS was married on the Legacy in 2005. Now, the very greedy and dysfunctional Burke kiddies have made WJ no more. Very sad.

It's been more than a year, I can see, since anyone posted on this thread.

But I haven't been on a cruise since 1992. So I am not exactly up to date on the latest happenings.

Is there any sailing cruise line with the "look and feel" of Windjammer?

Only Windstar, right? But without the whole abandoning passengers and not refunding money thing going on?

There are two companies you can investigate: Island Windjammers and a company running the Oasis. Go here for more info:
