Yes indeed, welcome back Larry.  The other sites have been asking about you as well.

Glad you're better. sounds like you've been prohibited from the hobby & Skip hunting.   %)

Concentrate on recovery and keep writing.   :-))

Also just returned from four days in the local meat processing factory using eleven collapsible fuel tanks, eleven fuel filters and about seventy feet of silicon fuel tube plus numerous quick release fittings. Went in with one thing and they found something else but despite tunnelling out, have to go back for a "Day" visit.
 
    Keep yer pecker up  Larry and don't let the forum wind yer up.
 
   Very best wishes,   Ian.

Hi Larry,
 
Your post was duplicated in two locations that I saw, one was removed and for those going to that thread where the post was removed from, found a message advising the Post had been removed.
 
So all is well as they say, however, you have not been removed good luck  :-)) :-))

Very much a gentleman.  Exchanged a few parts and fittings with him over the last few years. He had a great knack of using everyday items in his scratch building and a sad loss to his family and modelling.

My condolences to his family. A great loss to the boating world. He was very popular here as he was ingenious with his building.
