Bill White's Sea Knight

Post by Smith Brother » Fri May 28, 2010 8:53 pm

Love the quality of workmanship that Bill White did on his Sea Knight.

I didn't see a way to send to him a personal note? Help.

Thanks,

Glad to see you're about! Retirement must be a lot more work than you thought. You must be busy!

Thanks Bill, yes, I am busy....

My SPOUSES WORKING ON HOUSES business has been more than I could have expected, two weeks ago I sent customers a note stating I was going to devote my time to arty things, well several said, I HAVE ONE MORE PROJECT, WOULD YOU DO FOR ME? LOL.

Our church has commissioned me three time this past year to make arty things for them, and so I have decided to make some arty furniture items that we could use in our home, then offer them FOR SALE. If they don't sell we will use in our home, so we will see.

I love the Sea Knight Bill White just finished, and would like to share some personal comments directly with him, so hoping he will see and send me a PM.

Thanks Bill, I have a very soft spot in my heart for this site, OH SO MUCH TO DO, OH SO LITTLE TIME.

Wow Dale, it's been 2 years since you posted last. It's good to see you're alive and still kickin. Any chance of your coming to our Gathering this year?
Isn't it amazing!! The person that never has the fortitude to pursue his own dreams, will be the first to try and discourage you from pursuing yours.

Dave, thanks for your comments, and invite. Sharon and I talked about such when you had the very first, I guess that was 2-3 years ago, but didn't make it happen.

I need to finish my 78" IO 1950's boat and bring that, that would be fun, and I would guess we could find someone to test drive it, huh? I could pull it behind my BIG Buick street rod. 1941.

I will check the dates out, and do my best to make that happen. I know you all have had great times, and it has been MY LOSS. FOR SURE!

I will stay in touch.

Dale

P.S. I have posted a couple times, you have been busy and missed such. Thanks for your note Dave, and YOU TOO BILL...........................

Dale,
Bill is only about 20 minutes from me and I wish I had known he was building a Glen-L design. I would have offered free labor just to learn. I'm going to try and make contact. I want to see his boat in person. Who knows maybe I can get him to join the forum, if nothing else I will relay your comment and see if I can get you two connected.

I would like to share some Sea Knight stuff with him.

Thanks,

Ladies and Gentlemen,
This is Chip reporting for "The Forum Daily". I had the pleasure to talk with Mr. Bill White of Edgefield, SC about his Sea Knight. Heck of a nice guy and a bit of a character, he would fit right in. :wink: I asked him why he wasn't a member of the forum and he informed me he was still on dail up and that he didn't intend to "get any new bills." Pirate, You were correct about the motor and so was he. He runs both.
Besides being named Glen-L's boat builder of the month he told me of another surprise he received this week. His Sea Knight will be in November's issue of "Small Boats Magazine". But, I got to him first. :D Guys, I could have talked to him all day. He even invited me up to see the boat. OK, I invited myself. :roll:
I must be doing something right this week. Not only did I get to talk to Bill, but I had the pleasure of meeting one of our World Famous Moderators and his wife this past Monday. :P :lol:
Until next time. Chill Out

One thing I forgot to mention. When I started talking about the Web Letter Bill was quick to let me know he had already seen it and I could hear pride in his voice as he went on to tell me how "Mr. Glen himself committed about his handle/cup holder." :D I still can't believe he built his boat right under my nose without me knowing it. :( I guess I need to brush up on my reporting skills. :lol:

Bill's boat is somewhat buried in another section but his blog is worth a few moments of everyone's time. For reference, this is what Dale is talking about. The devil is in the details.
