Eric Hedley Fisher lived a long and unusual life - enough for two or three lifetimes. He'd sailed around the world and back in the merchant navy. Eric held and unwavering passion for the sea, ever drawn to its breathtaking beauty and the freedom it promised. He was a brave man and didn't often show his emotions, although he had them. He was a good father, and the greatest gift he ever gave was to teach us to be strong and resilient. Godspeed, old salt. "
