Bob, Smitty, Christian, Brian and everyone else (I am not sure of everyones real names),
You are right he would spend hours upon hours trying to dial a boat in whether it was drive height, props, intakes, cylinder heads, jetting carbs, ect. He loved Sutphens too, and had driven the 30' Sutphen "Big Shot" on a few occasions, and just thought the world of Sutphens on how they would handle rough water.
It does not appear that my father will recover, but God can perform miracles and that is what it will take now. I will keep praying while my mother, my brother and I look after him in these last days.
Here is me driving his old (but brand new in the picture) 24' Pantera (and an 18' Donzi he restored entirely for me and my brother). He would do anything for his children and grandchildren, as well as any powerboater that needed help, or anyone who just wanted to talk/bullsh*t about boating. He loved boating, working on his boats in order for them to be faster, and working on other people's boats in order for them to have reliability and a good boating experience.
Thank you all for the support/thoughtfullness
