    Default Peter Lenihan

    I have the impression some sadness has happened in his life. Does anyone have any contact with him?
    His build thread was probably the best, most entertaining and detailed build threads seen on this forum.

    I enjoyed his thread regarding the installation of sponsons.

    If you are reading this, I hope you are well, Mr. Lenihan.

    I know some of us have drifted away. I'm kind of drifting back.

    But I certainly hope and wish that Mr Lemmonhands still has all his ten thumbs!

    I remembered him just last night and in my mind's eye called him up to ask how he's doing on behalf of the forum. I'll see if I can find his number and reach out to him. I hope he's doing well.

    I can't find his number. I thought it was in my phone. Went looking for an email and no joy yet. I'll keep at it though. He is missed here.

    I think he lives in Montreal, perhaps he is in a directory.

    I noticed Peter won a "Girl in a Boat" contest at Duckworks Magazine sometime back.

    It seems odd that he should just drop out of sight like that.

    As a LPBC owner I also wish to see him return to the WBF family one day.

    I am in the same area and boating for some years on Ottawa river riv unfortunately never cross his path. I learned so many things from his thread that he deserves at least a cold one! I too am wondering how he is doing.
