Funny but sad story.  I had purchased these old "Donald and Donna" UK strips quite a few years back and read many of them before some misfortune occurred and I lost nearly my entire Disney collection. I salvaged what I could. But I did lose the Donald and Donna stuff. Fortunately, beforehand, I had mocked up an image of Mac which I placed on a spreadsheet of assorted Disney comics & animation characters, but the characters were not labelled.  I remember most of them, but I could not remember Mac's name. 
I thank you and Kriton for helping me out.

    Hi Rich,

    Yes, this is Mac the sailor from old British stories (and one more recent Egmont story, where a writer friend of mine used him):

> I believe he was Donald?s sailing companion in old comic strips from the 1940s or 50s.

    Well, 1930s and (early) 1940s.

> He was featured in strips shortly after the Donald and Donna Duck serial comic strips.

    As you'll see from the accurate Inducks link above, he actually first appeared in the "Donald and Donna" serial.

    Now I'm curious how you happened to have an image of him without knowing his name?

    Best, Dave
