There is a lot of simularities that comes to mind, I guess, after reading many of his writings, and watching and reading peoples reactions. Maybe there are some simularities that goes with the territoriy of the boating business in a lot of ways. RIP

Oyster, Thanks for the posts and quote. I certainly didn't agree with every thing he said but as you say there is still a lot of common ground with anyone who builds boats or works in wood.

He did good.

Best to his family.

Like many folks I had been drawn to his articles and learned a lot from his unique presentation of ideas. My codolences to the family.

The news brought this to mind:

Sunset and evening star,

And one clear call for me!

And may there be no moaning of the bar,

When I put out to sea,

But such a tide as moving seems asleep,

Too full for sound and foam,

When that which drew from out the boundless deep

Turns again home.

Twilight and evening bell,

And after that the dark!

And may there be no sadness of farewell,

When I embark;

For tho

I never agreed with him or disagreed. I have known others like him.What they did or how they did it,worked for them and that was good enough. I had been reading his words as of late and it had prompted my bow skiff thread.I had read the fishermen sinking the mullet boat and it reminded me of people I had known with similar circumstances. I didn't know him beyond a thread or 2 and his own website but somehow it just seems fitting to say so long and with that in mind,I am not looking forward to saying it to anyone else here anytime soon.So y'all take care of yourselves,ya hear?

and to you Robb White, RIP
