Background

"Red" MacAllister was the husband of Leona (Bunker) MacAllister.

He was a master carpenter.  He built minesweepers in Florida during the war.  He also built a number of the summer houses on Great Cranberry -- Lea's, for one, plus Wini and Jack Wallace's, which was [originally] the Cranberry Cove Restaurant.  Red and Clarence Beal together supervised the Beal and Bunker boatshop where my Island Queen was built, as well as ten of the Sea Princess models.  His hair was reddish.

Red and his brother-in-law Lindon "Tud" Bunker also built the Whale's Rib Gift Shop on the same site as the Cranberry Cove Restaurant; it was later moved to its present location.
