After Fred built the Condor, he ran all of the whale watches and the island trips for us at SBMNH. I've never met a betterr skipper or a finer human. Fred was bright, gracious, generous, kind, and a wonderful raconteur. He was a pillar of the community, His is an enormous loss; he cannot be replaced. Fair winds and following seas, old friend.

I was lucky enough to meet Ferd and his wife in Tanzania on a photo safari back in 2005. Though I only knew him for those two weeks him and his wife invited me to come out and vist them at there house in Santa Barbra. I was unable to make that trip but I alwas knew it would have been fun. Fred seemed to be very outgoing and hospitable. I'm know he will be missed by many. RIP

Fred, you are my friend, mentor, and surrogate Santa Barbara father! You always believed in me, even when I did not. Your generosity, free spirit, and zest for life is permanently ingrained in everyone who was fortunate enough to know you. I love you with all my heart and soul and I will never forget all that you have done and taught me. Rest in peace my captain!
