  5. You were a true gentleman; genuine, selfless and good humoured. Though you always seemed to be working hard and rushing to get your next job, you were never too busy to stop to offer help or advice, or just for a friendly chat. I was privileged to have known you. Rest well, my friend.

  6. Dave
    Thanks very much for all your help over many years with houseboats, motor boats and all things nautical. We will miss your cheery smile across the water. Hope the waters are calm and the sun shines wherever you are.
