Thank you for sharing with us all the sad news of the loss of your Dad.
I only met Eric once, but I can still recall his enthusiasm & keen sense of humour. I can only echo Barend's comments by saying that we will all think of him whilst sailing & working on our WB's. He designed and built a boat which always seems to make people smile.
Thank you,also, for providing your own Winkle Brig website, which I have really enjoyed - and further enhancing your Dad's memory.
All the best
