    Ya know, I do miss seeing that light on, miss his wit and wisdom......and his stories,
    damn, I miss them the most. As for Chuck himself, I can't say the same. He is
    always with us, in mind and spirit. I often wonder what he would have to say on
    this subject or that............and sometimes the imagination just leads me back
    to the impressions he has made on my heart.

    I don't know how I missed this thread first time round but what a great story. I'll have to come back and finish it though...work to do.

    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    Why is Jeff re-posting a copy when the original is still here?

    Sorry Donn, I needn't have bothered after all. I see BF has the original up, that's good, I must admit I didn't look for it as I thought it had gone in one of the forum's crashes.

    Bump. for posterity
    One of the most enduring qualities of an old wooden boat is the smell it imparts to your clothing.
