My husband and I are new sailors and had our boat on the same dock as your dad. He was so helpful and patient to us with the tons of questions we had for him. He finally told us to "just go and do it" so we took our first trip to the Keys and had a great time building on what he had taught us. We know that now he is in the loving arms of Our Father and having a grande ol'e time! We are so happy to have know him. Deb and Noel Couture.
