New to the forum (and boat building). Been following along the past couple weeks on your build.
Very sorry to hear about your dad not doing well. That's rough to go through.

Loving your C21 build. Nice, clean lines, done right!

Thanks Everyone for the kind and supportive thoughts.
Boat is on hold for a little while. I have new machine work for trains and a job for the EOD team to do.
Fun, Fun Fun.

Bad news is no boat updates for a while :cry: Good news is being hooked up like a show dog is good for the wallet. :P
Here is hoping your Dad is doing better.

Hello Everyone,

I have not been able to touch the boat. Heck, I don't know when I'll be able to get back to it.
My dad is in the hospital. He had emergency surgery Tuesday night. Back five months ago he fell and got a hernia from it.
Well, the last couple of weeks he could not keep food down. We thought it was the colon cancer. Since he was in Hospice care they said that was probably correct. We saw him Saturday and he was complaining of pain but refused to take anything for it. Tuesday the Hospice nurse called and said they were taking him to the ER. The ER doctor said the hernia was hard and they did a scan. The result was the surgery. At around 2:45 in the morning the surgeon came out and told us his colon had become trapped in the hernia. That had cut off the blood supply to his lower colon. It was dead and had to be removed. This resulted in a colostomy bag, which Dad had not wanted. In fact, that's why he would not allow the cancer doctor to remove the tumor last year. We have been up there every night keeping watch on him. He is doing ok. He is very congested but he is not in great pain.
Beyond all this, I'm busy pursuing new customers for the shop. I'm just stretched thin for time right now. I know many of you have wished me well in the past and I feel you deserved an update on these things.
I'll look forward to better days.

Eric
