Farley Mowat, May 12, 1921-May 6, 2014
Farley Mowat was many things, to many people. For some, his 1958 book Grey Seas Under, a tribute to the tug Foundation Franklin, its crews and managers, was the start of a life-long interest in things tug related. A subsequent book The Serpent's Coil, a tale well told of an arduous tow and salvage by the Foundation Josephine added fuel to tug enthusiasm.
I will leave it to others to summarize the very full 92 years of Farley Mowat's life, but will only say R.I.P. Farley and Thank You.
