Yes, a puzzle. So was my wrist! I'm five weeks out of surgery, out of the cast/brace, and doing physical therapy. It's better everyday, literally.

Dave Lott had some legal issues and had to pay restitutions for almost 4 years. I don't know details.
Jimmy 70 Gilbert had kidney problems and has on dialyses. In pretty bad shape. I don't know if he is still alive.
Dwain Coltin's, the Skiiii Kinggg, wife had bad health problems. Dwain was taking care of her. I think she has died.
Dave Grason, has blood pressure problems and migraines. He last said he had personal issues to deal with.

Somebody can correct me on these. This just what I remember.

Dwain Coltain, the, Skiiii Kinnngggg,
He is alive and well, he is still taking care of his wife, she is still among us.
He sold his little Ski King boat, sold it to a lake property operator there in Oregon.
If Bob Maskel is reading this, he should call Ski King.
May God bless, Ski King is still with us.

Not sure how many of you remember Todd Broadlick "Buckeyesmith" of West Palm Beach? He built his Zip "Gem" https://boatbuilders.glen-l.com/zip-des ... m-beach-fl about 4 to 6 months ahead of me and we talked often during our builds. I ended up visiting his build while traveling for work and again once he had it completed and we went for a nice ride for a couple hours. We kept in touch and years later we both were doing chemo at the same time and had something to talk about again for a while. I got better and so did he but he was always on maintenance treatments for his disease. He had sold his Zip to a nice fellow in NC a little before. After a while we got to only talking a every 6 months or so but kept in touch through Facebook. The last I talked to him was when Hurricane Dorian was headed his way.
I got to thinking the other day that he hadnt "liked" anything on my facebook for a while. I found he had passed away not long after we last spoke. Just thought some of you that have been here for 10 years would remember him. He never made it to a Gathering but did go to the show in Mt Dora.
I'm glad to have known him a little, he was a kind man that had lived well and had some interesting experiences like living and sailing in the islands for a time.

Happy New Year to all!
I just spoke with Dwain Colton, the SkiiiKingggg!
His wife has passed away and he is lonely.
says he wants to come to the G15.
He welcomes anyone to call and chat.
With covid and all, nobody visits, and he is by himself.
Someone should call and cheer him up.

Pete

FB may be taking some of the conversation. But, not much. Tis the season, and building activity slows down.

Hope you had a good Christmas! :)
