We failed to mention the passing of builder/sailor/designer Mark Lindsay, but here is a comment from designer Bob Perry:

Sorry to read this morning of the death of Mark Lindsay. Mark worked for Dick Carter at the time I was there. He was a lot of fun, high energy. He had a unique drafting style involving a lot of free hand lines. It was very effective.

Magazine articles of Carter designs would say “from the drawing board of Dick Carter” despite the fact that Dick did no drawing at all.. Mark cut one of these quotes out of the magazine and taped it to the edge of his drawing board. It read, “The drawing board of Dick Carter”. Dick must have seen it but said nothing.
