    Walter P has passed away

    For those of you how knew Walter Pereira ("Walter P"), I wanted to let you know that he passed away yesterday. Ed and I always enjoyed his company and all of the really interesting stories he had to tell. He was a really neat guy. He will be missed. He was 86. Here is a link to the obit:

    I only met Walter once and that was on Angela's boat. He was a very knowledgeable Hatteras guy that did some really nice woodwork on his 48MY. He would call me from time to time.

    I think he has a storage unit with a bunch of Hatteras parts in it. He once sold some props to another member here from that stash and it didn't turn out too well as I remember.

    Never had the pleasure of meeting Walter, but corresponded and spoke on the phone a couple of times. Very nice man, I enjoyed our talks. RIP Walter, and condolences to his family.

    Sorry to hear, he was one of the long time members

    he stayed on your boat back in 2008 when we did the raft up during the boat show, right? Was it him whose wife lost her glasses when one of us threw a line over? Trying to remember.

    None of us are getting any younger . I often see Maynard by the marina, he was at the raft up with his 36. He s not in great shape.

    That's too bad to hear about Maynard.

    Re: Walter P has passed away

    While we were docked at the Rondout Yacht Harbor in Connolley NY, Walter brought his Hatteras up and we got to chat a bit. He was doing extensive upgrades to its galley and the bow rails. As I recall he was doing this on his own and referred to it as his time to play.

    While he was showing me his bridge, I was talking about oil pressure in our boat. After A good run on the Hudson in Summer time I would pull into the dock and tie up. However part of docking meant dealing with oil ressure alarms when I shifted. They were intermittent and sometimes didn't sound much at all but the light would flicker. He said he had an easy fix for it.

    "This is how I fixed it". I watched as he reached down to the alarm fuses and opened one up. There was no fuse.

    We laughed a bit but being new to Detroits I wondered. BTW it didn't happen much if we kept the rides at hull speed.

    Sad to see he has met the eventuality but 86 is a darn good run.
    Regards
    Dan
