Editors, Vineyard Gazette:

Few had knowledge of the waters surrounding the Vineyard like Capt. Bob Weiss. With years of experience he could keep his clients and guests busy catching fish and listening to a lifetime of stories. He was gifted at doing both. As fellow captains and mariners we were always kept on our toes with Bob’s quick wit, humor and common sense advice. Bob had knowledge about many things boating and otherwise and was also willing to share with anyone who would listen. We were lucky to be among those who did.

Fair tides, calm seas and tight lines to you Captain Bob.

Capt. Charlie Ashmun and Capt. Rob Coad, Edgartown
