Mr Ted(Tutunzis)Tyler passed on October 11, 2007 in Texas City, Texas. The wonderful sailboats he designed, and innovation used in building them, is testament to his love of sailing. It was fitting that Mr Tyler's family granted his wish for a burial at sea.

Fair winds and following seas, Ted.

Please enjoy and share information on the Tylercraft Group!
