    What can I say, devastating news..! My deepest condolences to Chikako, family and his loved ones!

    After having worked together on M/Y Carinthia VI, Lars as 1st Eng and me as Captain we´ve stayed in touch over the years and it was always a true pleasure getting an update on his whereabouts and ever lasting adventures. A great man, true friend and one of the best engineers I´ve ever had the pleasure of working with has now entered a long journey into the unknown. I´ll end this message the same way as Lars always ended his e-mails: I wish you fair winds and following seas! Take care buddy…!
