I was told Norris Tapp is a standup guy, and this reply he just posted agrees with that assesment.


Dr. Bill

My name is Norris and I was, in fact, the Captain of the Freelance on Sunday.

First, I would like to apologize to you and any of your associate divers for my action on Sunday. I want this situation "put to bed". I, personally, will not be the instigator of any such activity in the future. It was a terrible misjudgement on my part. Neither my crew, passengers nor Davey's Locker should be held accountable and don't deserve any current or future criticism as you suggested.

I have spoken to the Avalon Harbor Department and the rules of anchoring in that particular area have been specifically detailed to me. I assure you that the discussion I had with their representative will be imparted to all of our Captains here at Davey's Locker.

As for the interaction between sportfishing and diving, both sides need to be more tolerant and understanding of the other. We both have the desire to undertake our endeavors afforded us by the ocean that is here at our disposal.

Please accept this as a formal apology for my encroachment. If you wish to discuss this issue, please give me a call at (949) 673-1434 daily, or provide me with your name and phone number (both of which were conspicously missing on your ALLCOAST post, deliberately or otherwise), as I would gladly discuss this or any outstanding or unresolved issues with you.

Respectfully submitted

Norris Tapp
