Thanks everyone for your thoughts. I'm still trying to get my head around this...a three hour mountain bike ride wasn't enough. Every time I look at my boat, I am slammed with memories of the guy that spent so much time with me working on it...from drive maintenance to my new dash...he was always there before I even had a chance to ask. Some people are hard to get money OUT of...Brian was hard to GIVE money to...most of his work he did for free or next to nothing, just because that's the kind of guy he was. Damn I miss him.

RIP Brian

I am speechless!!!! An hour and a half of Karate did not even scratch the surface. Everything said here so far hits it on the head. Several times Brian offered us temporary storage to avoid extra trailering, as we were heading to the same area 2 weekends in a row, and I just thought that was the coolest offer. This was done just so we would enjoy ourselves. Everytime we were together, you had to trick him to buy him a round.

God speed buddy, and you will be missed.

Tom & Rose
