My father.

Magnus, during the first year of your life I sailed with you and your mom and dad on the old Venus 28. You did fine. Your dad was seasick, as usual, during the first few days at sea. We sailed from the Virgin Islands where you were born to The Bahamas. That was one of the best times of my life. I have some great memories that I would like to share with you. Please email me.

Hello Magnus,
The last time I saw you, you were atop the mast of big vinus in Gustavia, St Barts, but still in diapers. Like the dozens of comments you certainly recieve, your dad and I sailed together in the caribbean. He has touched the lives of so many and always frothe better. Say hello to him from me if you contact him before I do. Cheers, Madman Murphy

I just met your father yesterday, amazing stories and a wonderful kind man. I found myself so intrigued I had to "google" him. Many blessings to you and your family.

Dear Magnus, I knew your father in Arbroath, myself, Ray, Anna and Horton Canale, plus my mad dog Sheila that your father had to lift on and off Venus. They were great times. Horton has recently died and I wish I had said thank you to him for all the laughs - he would have liked that. So I hope you can say thank you to your father for providing one of the "nice bits" in my life and congratulate him on having had such a wonderful career. His paintings were awesome when he was young, so they must be even better now! Tell him not to worry if he can't remember - it gets us all. Yours sincerely, Pat Beaton.
