    I can certainly empithise with the way he felt about his declining faculties.
    Its in my family too.

    Bolgers reasoning for Suicide is easier to understand than the normal reasons. At least for me it is.
    Words cannot suffice beyond; "I'm sorry!"

    Nonsense...neither he or thee has nothing to be "sorry" about... He entered this world under someone else's terms but exited under his own... glory be to those who have that privilege.

    By some standards Mr. B was ecentric. By my own standards he was a folk hero at the very least. I will miss his humor, his sometimes concealed brilliance, and his peripheral manner of thinking............ RIP

    This news really shakes me up. We are witnessing the greatest change in sailboat design of all time. Boldger has much to do with that.
