So sad, the passing of giants. People we never know personally, but who affect our lives in so many, great ways. My condolences to family and friends. Dick will be missed by all, and remembered forever.

Our condolences to family and friends. We had great admiration for Dick, first for the elegant gullwing designs, and later for designing our trimaran Fleetwing (ex Kriter VII) in such a way that she rode out the “perfect Storm” without ever putting us in great danger. Fair Winds Dick!

I met Dick at a boat show many years ago-sitting on top of Moxie selling orange Moxie T-shirts. I still have mine and will now wear it only for special sailing occasions.
