It is always sad to hear and/or find out about these passings. It really makes you pause and reflect on your own mortality.

Thanks for posting that BC, :happy: whilst I never met 'Buka', I knew he was something of a legendary figure amongst our Shipwright :3some: Community and will be missed by many...

R.I.P. 'Buka', [-o< your journey is done...

:-k I received the following sad news this afternoon... :evil3:

"Many of the earlier MOBIs, and probably many more, will remember Eric Toyer – a big man with a big heart.

Message received from Bruce Sloper this morning:

Good morning Bob, I thought I would pass on this information if you haven’t
already heard. Eric Toyer our valued international yacht and adventurer MOBI
traveller has just informed his friends that his long term partner Lynne was
killed in a single car accident in Tamworth NSW yesterday. Eric is in Lombok,
Indonesia. He will be travelling to Australia in the next couple of days.

Very sad. He will be devastated.

Our sympathies go out to our MOBI mate in distress.

Bob Mummery"

I met Lynne on one of Eric's voyages to Sydney when I and a few others were invited to spend the day and overnight aboard Eric's yacht, the lovely catamaran, 'Amarula'...

Image A fellow Chippy, Eric graduated with our 13th MOBI Intake... I offer my sincere condolences to Eric and to Lynne's family...
May you rest in peace, Lynne, a sad loss indeed... [-o<


Here's a couple of links to Eric and Lynne's website and blog... :type: SV Amarula is for Sale :evil3: ...and also to Amarula's current listing on :type: The Yacht Hub :evil3:

Image

I just sent the following e-mail to Eric, via a 'Contact Seller' link on 'The Yacht Hub', which I'm hoping will eventually reach him... Here's a link to :type: Amarula's FB Page

"Hello Eric, I have just learned of Lynne's sad passing; I struggle to find the right words to give you any solace and comfort, so may I just offer you my sincere condolences,
along with those of our many members on RAN Skilled Hands who know you, some who knew you both... I remember Lynne from your kind invitation for a few of us to spend
the day (and overnight) onboard 'Amarula' with you both when you visited Sydney way back when, at the start of your grand adventure..."
