58 foot Roamer "Pro-Tem" at sea off the coast of Providenciales in the Turks and Caicos Islands. 1980's
"Pro-Tem" towing Freighter "Southwind" to her final resting spot
Providenciales, Turks and Caicos Islands. Freighter "Southwind" was my father's. My brothers and I operated it in the late 70's and early 80's transporting Liquor from the Dominican Republic and Florida for my father's company Carib West. We also transported telephone poles from Florida for the Power Company that my father built.
My father and Diver Art sank M/V Southwind off the north shore of Providenciales. Art went down with the ship until it reached its final resting spot. It was a dive site for a long time.
Art is Gone!! He went down as if he was the Master of the vessel.
Providenciales, Turks and Caicos Islands. 52 foot Matthews "Wind Chasers" with the varnished transome. This was a beautiful boat. I think this was early 1972. It's a shame that she sank off the Plana Cays in 6000 feet of water.
Grandfather Lewis H. Withey II at the helm of his Egg Harbor "Jupiter". Jupiter was the name of Dr. Charles Shepard's Horse.
