    RIP Irv. Found him as a friend on Facebook after all his years as owner of the BG90. A really colorful character I'm glad I got to know.

    Didn't have the pleasure to know him. Sounds like I missed out.

    Godspeed Capt.


    Some time at eve,when the tide is low,
    I shall slip my moorings and sail away,
    With no response to a friendly hail,
    In the silent hush of the twilight pale,
    When the night stoops down to embrace the day
    And the voices call in the water’s flow.

    Some time at eve when the tide Is low,
    I shall slip my moorings and sail away
    Through the purple shadows that darkly trail
    O’er the ebbing tide of the unknown sea,
    And a ripple of waters to tell the tale
    Of a lonely voyager, sailing away
    To mystic isles, where at anchor lay
    The craft of those who have sailed before
    O’er the unknown sea to the unknown shore.

    A few who have watched me sail away
    Will miss my craft from the busy bay;
    Some friendly barques that were anchored near,
    Some loving souls that my heart held dear,
    In silent sorrow will drop a tear;
    But I shall have peacefully furled my sail
    In mooring sheltered from storm and gale
    And greeting the friends who have sailed before
    O’er the unknown sea to the unknown shore

    I remember when this was an actual freeway billboard, right above the Rosecrans onramp to the 5.
    Am proud to have spent many hours and days with him. RIP Big Guy.

    Met Irv for the first time in1973 when he was second ticket for Gordy Stark on the China Clipper. Fished SBI. Irv let me fish his factory wrap 39. 4/0 & 60# Meslon; fishing mackerel for Calicos. Wow!! That affected me for the rest of my life. Use to charter the Sundown in the 70's. Had some good times with Scott Sterling and Merit McRae as deckhands.
    I'm really sorry to hear this message
