RE: “In Memoriam: Kevin MacDonald” (May 1-14)
Kevin was a cherished member of the Kona Kai Club community for many years. His sincerity and geniality will be missed by all on Shelter Island. Our thoughts are with his family during this sad time.

RE: “A life of boats, travel; former Log owner Lou Gerlinger’s work and life remembered” (May 15-28)
I was the editor at The Log shortly after Lou sold the paper. He was a familiar figure in the office and with his wealth of knowledge about the boating industry and treasure trove of connections, I welcomed the advice he freely offered me and the staff. He definitely left his mark on the publication and will be missed. Condolences to his family and his friends.
What a wonderful man he was. I used to greatly enjoy working with him as a PR person. We’d talk about business then inevitably about life and boating topics in general. I learned so much. I had no idea he led quite a life – and his kids are in the same business! Love it. Rest in peace Lou and hope you found Betty with a boat waiting for you up there…
RE: “Port of San Diego re-opens bay to recreational boating” (May 1-14)
I’m on the water 3 to 4 times a week (SD Bay).The parking lot is full due to spacing requirements. Everyone seems to be complying to all the requirements, with the exception of an individual sail boat that I see every so often with 9-12 various college age passengers. Just hoping one or two bad apples don’t ruin it for the rest of us. Respect the water.
