Sorry to hear of your Dads passing, Chief. Mine passed a more than a decade ago. They were both of the greatest generation. Dad was on the beach on D-Day... But never really spoke of the war. What a gift your Dad's sharing of his love for the water was. You will always have that within you. Take care, Chris

Ah, what a lovely thing you wrote, Chief, about your Dad!

In Australia we would say: "90! Not a bad innings!"

All the best to you and your family in your time of sadness and may you relish those wonderful memories.
