    I will never forget when Paul called me to break the news that he got the job with Nordhavn. He was so happy and proud, and we had such a good celebration dinner with Charla. I will do my part to keep all the good memories alive. There are so many. My condolences to everyone at Nordhavn, and everyone else who knew and loved him. Fare thee well, Paul. You lived a full, adventurous life and made so many of our lives better — and definitely more fun.. Your light shines everywhere I look. xo

    Paul was my cousin, hadn’t seen him for years but knew he loved the sea after his upbringing in newquay with us as children and his time spent in the navy, such a shock to hear news of his passing for all our family and friends and all who knew him, this is a lovely tribute to paul may he rest in peace with his mariner mates

    As Charla’s Aunt, I can’t tell you how much we appreciate you recognizing the amazing man her Daddy Boats was. He was her light and her port of safety in this life and we are devastated at his loss for Charla, Pete and his entire family. He loved his job and the people he worked with. We will remember him as full of life and love. Thank you for remembering and honoring him!

    We are truly saddened of this news and will miss Paul dearly, he was a genuine soul.

  15. Guy and Vickie Wood

    Vickie and I are terribly sorry to hear of Paul’s passing.

    He was a wonderfully patient and kind man as he helped us purchase our first boat, ONWARD (N4030, formerly Net Effect and Pilgrim) about six years ago. We truly appreciated his wit and wisdom, as well as the time he willingly shared walking us newbies through the process.

    We were blessed to have known Paul and we will be forever grateful that our wakes crossed.

    My deepest sympathy,

    In complete shock to only learn of this today. Met Paul at the Newport Boat Show in 2014 and purchased the “small deal” N4029 with him in 2016. He was great counsel and friend and I will miss his caring way.

    This was Paul, always checking in:

    Paul and I met during my early days of coming to So Cal from UK. He helped to make my transition soooooo much easier. My fave memories of him include cooking and sharing his Cornish pasties, listening again and again to one of his favorite songs – Yellow by Cold Play, watching loads of British TV, enjoying a few too many Mai-Tai’s at The Wind and Sea on more than one occasion 😉😉, dressing up at Halloween and last but not least – introducing me to Charla. My heart goes out to Charla, Pete and all his family. Paul loved you so, so much. He loved Cornwall, sailing, the ocean and ‘just’ having fun..
    I wish we could sing a few lines from Yellow, just once more. – ‘Look at the stars, Look how they shine for you, And everything you do, Yeah, they were all yellow’. RIP my dear friend, You are deeply missed.
