Default RIP Dave Pascoe

Per his website, Dave Pascoe has passed away on Nov 24. Although he seemed to be strongly opinionated you couldn't argue with the fact that he was a wealth of knowledge on the subject of boating. May he rest in peace.

Yeah. Seemed to know his stuff regarding doing surveys - even if very opinionated. RIP.

Fair winds and following seas.

He was one of a kind. It is sad to lose another well-respected specialist from the marine industry.

I learned a good bit from reading his articles years ago. His writings provided a great deal of information that one may not have considered when evaluating a boat. Whether I agreed or disagreed with his views he was very knowledgeable. Sad to hear of his passing.

He was certainly instrumental in my choice of boats. Most of his observations were very accurate. Now he can discuss boat building with Noah

Everyone must've read something he wrote at one time or another. Old school but a wealth of information!

His name was just brought up on a recent thread about boat reviews. Interesting guy.

I began following Mr Pasco forty years ago. Based on his experience I trusted his views then and trust them now. Nothing but blue skies for Dave now.

I used his material as a good baseline prior to getting into a big boat. I really enjoyed reading his highly opinionated writing.

Most of us would not own boats if everyone followed his recommendations to a "T"... we just couldn't afford it. He believed in nothing but the best, which is good if you can afford it. Definitely a wealth of knowledge and worth every second of reading what he wrote though! You would learn quite a bit!!! Sorry to hear that he's gone.

I learned more about boats from him than anyone else.

He had strong opinions, but most of them were right.

RIP Dave
