Bill Watson, licensed skipper and life time pal passed away in his sleep on Sunday morning March 20, 2011. Bill was seventy four years old. Unselfish and always willing to lend a hand, he was the kind of guy that if you were stuck in San Diego needing a tow, he would come to the rescue. He loved wooden sail boats and in later years moved aboard his modified H28 Ketch "Charmaine". After living aboard in Newport Beach CA for several years he set up base in Avalon where he ran shore boats for several years. Bill also ran ferries to and from off shore oil rigs. He skied, was an avid cyclist and was in the finishing stages of restoring his vintage Porsche Coupe. Sadly, it was his love of smoking cigaretts that finally got to him.
See you someday in Fiddler's Green my friend.

Glad you had such a great friend.
Sounds like a life well lived. 74 is too young.
