Letters To The Editor

Letter: Union Faith

Fifty Years Ago (“This Week,” October 21):  Capt. Douglas Grubbs is called Donald. His story is outstanding. He is a retired Crescent River Pilot. He is a good friend with an impressive history even since the terrible Union Faith collision, fire and sinking with many losses of life. He has had much to do with navigation safety on the rivers.

Enjoyed October 21 issue, especially the article on Pete Merrill, another old friend.

Everyone very much enjoyed the International Propeller Club of the United States Convention and Conference. The panels on “Sailing Into The Future” were outstanding.
