Yes, I am alive.

Hello everyone;
Just wanted to let all of you know that my act of disappearing is temporary. My Arg was inside the shop since New Year and it has been receiving much attention ever since at the rate of 16 hours per day. I am about three weeks from completion of the project. My wife loves the results and is very excited about future trips. Have many pics to post after we finish the job, Arg must be out of the shop by end of February or my customers will strangle me. Thanks, "Boatdoc"

BD - Good to hear! 3 weeks must feel very good. Aside from the exceptional job and chronicles you have posted, it would be very interesting to hear what destinations you have been dreaming about with every task...

Hey Boatdoc

It's always a little scary when someone suddenly disappears for a while. One starts to wonder if they fell into their solid waste tank or something.

So you are saying three more weeks of having fun and then the pictures will start showing up? Or are you going to tempt us with a few teasers in the meantime?

Glad your back,
Barry & Donna

Gotta say it...

It would have been WAY spooky if you'd sent an "I'm Dead" post from the other side...

Always enjoy your threads... I have no desire to restore (after owning an old house) but I enjoy watching.


Today is a gift, that's why they call it the present.
