Fantail

The fantail has for many years been the place where crew members have gathered to pay their last respects to a fallen shipmate. It is, therefore, fitting that we too set aside the fantail as that special place where we remember our fallen shipmates. The fantail list will display only the last 20 or 25 shipmates that have been reported to have passed away. The latest reported shipmate will be at the top of the list and as we add a shipmate we will remove the last one listed.
