Due to login/technical problems I've been away from this board for a long time. It's certainly showing it's age and so are some of us.
I just thought it would be useful to "call the roll" so to speak?
Joe H. who was THE man for Easthopes has passed on, Dick Day, THE man for Palmers. Who else have we lost in the last few years?
I see quite a few posters who contributed a lot in the past haven't been on for some years - we don't want to invade anyone's privacy, but just a thought!

I haven't been on for many years but have again become interested in the hobby. Saddened by the passing of many members and the lack of activity on the site. Sure wish the classified section were operational.

I'm still here in the UK with my Truscott and Brooke launches. Always very interesting site even with the limited number of posts. Thanks for keeping it functioning

I still read posts but my eye sight is so poor I gave my machine shop to my old engineer employee. With the shop gone I cannot make patterns and core boxes.
Sure miss all you great guys!
Cheers and best wishes

I continue to read and occasionally post repnses that I hope assist thers.
I also continue to float my boats when the water is not frozen.
And I continue to receive questions directly from pals whose contacts were made through OME.
The old marine engines and the old friends still hold a strong fascination for me.

Still here down under, retired now but still not finding time for my engines. Have noticed a decrease in posts here, my self included. Hoping you are all going well.

Bob Long from Cape Cod Mass who was always at Mystic and Calvet as well as a lot of other North East US shows passed away a couple of years ago.
