Another Notable Sailor Has Crossed The Bar

Arthur Fournier passed away this morning. Don’t know any more than that. I know he had his friends and his enemies but whatever you thought of him he was a giant of the tug industry in his own way. He will be missed.

Yeah heard from a pilot onboard this afternoon. Stirred more shit than anyone but shaped the New England tug business as much as anyone else. Guess it was an ongoing illness at that point. Met him a half a dozen times or so, what a trip.
