Default I am writing the book, while I am on this side of the daisies.......

I am well into the book. I am really enjoying reliving some of the past. Still waiting for a couple of people to die so that I can tell some great stories about them. I am also looking for stories and pix. I am including a section of good stories from other people, both builders and racers old time and fairly old time. If you have a story that is funny and interesting and you want it in print, email it to me at [email protected]. I'm pretty picky. I am going up to Sammy James' for a long lunch in the next couple of weeks. If you have never been around Sammy, you have missed some major yuks. Also going to Odell, who is the undisputed king of boat stories and one of my best pals. Anyway, I am writing like crazy (hmmm) and look forward to sharing with y'all. Brownie

"waiting for people to die so that you can write about them" ?

Wouldn't it be more fun to read the rebuttals too ?

That is great Brownie. Alan c. Ray from Rubrails.com has some great pics and stories about my old 32' Cary "Lon gone" . You rigged the boat in 1973 and he has shown me a picture of you in Miami back then. Good luck. Sounds great. Cary
