I'm very sorry for you're loss, my condolences go out to you're entire family.
I did exactly the same thing, As soon as I took delivery, I got my dad on our Nor-Tech right before he got extremely ill. It was something he always wanted to do, sit behind a helm of a perf. boat with a du-rag on. That made his day and I miss those moments..took alot of pics and with the help of Marc Blondin and Jay I was able to get them framed. Take Care. Jeff
