I am sorry that this is the second Captain that worked for me that I have to tell you about. Captain Tom Binkley was a very good friend of mine and worked for me for many years. I helped him get his Captainís license and we worked many hours on the boat and for several years and was on every trip.
He was an avid hunter and loved the people on the boat. He would always share his knowledge of his hunting skills and show other divers how to hunt.
He loved Cognac and a fine cigar. We often would share that after a trip. We would sit on the top deck and reflect on the trips. Their ups and downs. If this reminds you of Boston Legal, they stoll it from us.
Tom retired a few years ago, and spent most of his last diving days on the Cee Ray and some times on the Westerly. He loved to fish and gave me a very nice fishing pole which I have never used. I am going to use it tomorrow and get a fine cigar and a bottle of Cognac and toast him. I will invite Captainís Kym and Mike over to join me.
I will miss my friend, I already do.
He passed suddenly and tragically. You can Google it, if you want, I will not comment on that.

Thank you,

Captain Timothy C. Burke
