Hi guys,
I'm a new member, Lonnie Black. I had plans to come and join the gathering but just had an enexpected death in family. Sorry I won't be able to meet all of you and will hope to make the next one.
I had just completed my "Baby" a week ago and was anxious to get some constructive criticism on it from you all.
It's a 9' Microcruiser of my own design which I used all Glen-L epoxies, poxygrip and additives with which I was very impressed.
I will attach a pic of "Li'l Salty". She was successfully launced Monday, an hour prior to hearing of my younger brother's passing.
We will be thinking of you.
Lonnie and Cindy Black

Lonnie.

I am so sorry to hear of your Brother's passing. Thank you for taking the time to let us know that you will not be here.

That is a beautiful boat, and we look forward to seeing it next time.

The "Li'l Salty" is a sailboat. The motor is a single sculling oar. We live on a lake in Avon Park and have home in Key Largo.

Thanks for keeping us included with the pictures. Great shots. :D One question. Who is the rookie docking his beautiful boat bow first? :oops: Only a guy from Missouri would do something like that. :shock: :roll: It looks like all the Tubby Tugs need to be assigned to him. :wink: :P :lol: :lol: :lol:
