In Memory of William “Mike” Lewis

Mike gifted me my first Know Your Ships book way back in 2013. That gift inspired me to start writing Shipwatcher News, and without it the newsletter would not have brought me and so many others on this incredible journey.  It is because of this that this issue of Freighters is dedicated in his memory.
