Passing of Bill Crealock

Bill Crealock, designer of the popular Westsail boats (including this, the Westsail 42) as well as the famous Pacific Seacraft designs, passed away late last September at the age of 89. His obituary in the LA Times
"When computers began to be used in design work, Crealock said he preferred working by hand, mixing art and engineering in his designs. Crealock's designs were used for every craft from dinghies and brigantine-rigged sailing ships to catamarans and 70-foot powerboats. He even made some preliminary designs for a charter submarine."
