I just received an email
from the San Diego
Yacht Club that Staff Commodore and Naval Architect Arthur DeFever has passed away. DeFever's designs of 'Alaskan' style trawlers remain legendary. As an easy man to get to know, Art was active in the San Diego
community and he and I were both members of the same Rotary Club. He is survived by his wife, Ruth.
Fair winds, Art.
