Jonathan Harrison Obituary, Death – A memorial to Jonathan Harrison, who was an avid skier on both snow and water and also had a deep love for boats. Jonathan Harrison is being honored with this tribute, which is dedicated in his memory. I had the pleasure of meeting Jonathan for the very first time in 2007, while I was in the process of looking for my very first albatross. At the time, I was in the process of looking for my very first albatross. He was gracious enough to share some of his time and his expertise with me, as well as to show me the prototype of the slipper that he intended to sell in the near future.
I owe him a great deal of gratitude for everything that he has done. His excitement and knowledge, especially in relation to the slippers, were unmatched by anybody else. After the tragic exhaust fire that claimed the life of their small Mk3, I imagine that his father bought them each a new pair of slippers at the London boat show. Over the course of many years, subsequent generations have developed a fondness for albatross boats, following in Jonathan’s wake and following in the footsteps of Jonathan. Jonathan’s enthusiasm for these watercraft served as the impetus for the development of this appreciation.
In recent years, he has had a good deal of success on the island of Anglesey, which he regards to be his spiritual home, in the process of building a number of two-seaters, as well as a fleet of Slippers and a Corsair. Because of the impact he had on everyone’s lives, Jonathan passed away unexpectedly a few days ago, but everyone will remember him forever as Mr. Slipper because of the part he played in their lives. Let’s keep our fingers crossed that in his next life he will be able to keep waterskiing. Let’s keep our fingers crossed. Let’s keep our fingers crossed and see what happens. I have a lot of gratitude toward Jonathan for everything he did to add to the story of the albatross boat, and I would like to convey that gratitude to him here.
