> Hi Alex - I hope you are doing well and I'm so sorry to hear about Bruce's passing. About 10 years ago to the day, we chatted about the Seacraft video Bruce made with Bill Potter. I am wondering if we could share this video somehow with the www.classicseacraft.com website. I still have a DVD copy of Bill Potter's VHS tape that I sent to you guys back in 2008. With your permission, I would love to be able to share it with the group. Please let me know if this would be "ok".

Ken - Ha! that's a safe place We could make it a sticky?

This is a nice write up on Bruce.

Thanks Tim
It's been awhile since I had seen it.
A sticky would be great.

BTW: I'm glad you didn't film us guys catching #@&\# Fish off the Cape
