Messages of Condolence Pour In For Weymouth Skipper

Book of Condolence

Tributes have been paid to a Weymouth skipper who died at sea, and his 2 crew members who're still missing.

35 year old father of 3 David McFarlane's body was found off Portland on Friday after his fishing boat the Purbeck Isle sank at sea.

A book of condolence has been placed in the foyer of Weymouth and Portland Borough Council Offices where people can leave a lasting tribute to the three men.

Mayor of Weymouth and Portland Borough Graham Winter told Wessex FM how the idea came about; "My wife and I decided to set up the book after visiting the floral tributes by the quayside. It's such a tragedy and it's hit the community quite hard even though they're not involved directly with the sea".
