Saturday May 9 Green Cove Springs, Fl.

In the previous post I asked for your help to get Jim Thomas out of jail. He made it out Jim and I and the Muscular Dystrophy Association thanks all of you for your help. In case you still had the thought sitting on the table you can go to the link at :

The “Fleetwood”  methamorphosis project is going well. I have the primer and the paint. It is a two part epoxy paint. The color is called Adobe Tan. The transom will stay in the original mahogany clear finish. It has been very hot and gets into the nineties inside the boat at mid afternoon.

Most of the old photo albums are now also coming up on this web site; so, I have taken the “Under Construction” sign down but there are still a few wires to be reconnected. I will do so while the epoxy is curing.

    I thought you might like to know. We just heard from the Simmonds that Bob Lewis just died, when I get the particulars I will forward them on.

    I would like to personally thank all of those who graciously supported me and the MDA in this fund-drive. I was so blessed to see the support from Jack’s “followers” and from Jack himself.
    Thanks again!

    -Jim Thomas
