On 6JUN17 while conducting operations off the coast of North Carolina, one my shipmates, my friend Chris Clavin, was lost at sea (see link) after searching for more than 70 hours the search was called off without recovering his body. I am starting this because his family drove from their home to Virginia, and the last thing during the crisis I want them to have to worry about is the financial side. If you feel the urge to give a little to help them out in this I would greatly appreciate it! Thank you so much for your support in advance. Fair winds and following seas shipmate. You'll forever be in our hearts and on our minds.
