I just heard my friend, Coconut Grove legend Allan "Jellyfish" Aunapu, has weighed anchor for the last time. What a warm, generous person he was, a tie-dyed sailor filled with child-like wonder.
In the 80's he drove a tie-dyed dune buggy. He called the total effect, "Hippy camouflage", invisible to the police.
Below, you can open the link to a short tribute to Allan, the first captain of Pete Seeger's sloop, "Clearwater". Allan was so proud of the ship as well as his son, siblings, his extended family, and his many friends. "Jelly" was planning to drive his electric bike to the annual Clearwater reunion in New York when he left us.
Hear Allan's version (2016) of "Zombie Jamboree",
