  • I remember Reg well he surveyed then repaired my first sailing cruiser “Kings Falcon”, and hand carved the name boards for her. I later sailed to the Fresian Islands in Germany in her. It was one of his “23 ft Seaking’s” Reg was a great man who always did a first class job. On the wall in the boatyard was a map with pins in it showing where all his yachts had been, when I came back from Germany he said “I’ll have to get a bigger map!” as Germany was not shown on it.
