Alan Burnard

It is with deep regret that we have to inform the boating world that Alan Burnard passed away on February 29th.

Not only was Alan responsible for the unique Fairey Marine designs but many MOD craft. He was also an expert in the black art of Propeller design and application.
Our condolances go to Alan's family, his many friends and of course the Fairey Owners Club, another great character lost forever.

Well I am very very sorry to hear that dear Alan Burard has pass on, he was very friendly and a great help to me with propeller work and design when I was working in the A1 shed at Fairey Marine in the 1970's and then on throw the 80's.
My condolences to the his family.
