George Guthro is the chief engineer for the R/V Weatherbird II and has been with FIO over 10 years and is currently the longest continuously serving crew member. Originally from the great state of Massachusetts, on Cape Cod he was around ships and boats almost every day growing up. George retired to Florida from being the owner/operator of a trucking company servicing food distributors and customers in 23 states in the Eastern US. He was a volunteer for the New England Aquarium, which lead him to find FIO and his current position after he retired (the first time). George also enjoy spending his free time on the water and with his adult daughter and family.
