Sad news Paul. Haven't heard from Wes for a couple of years. Who's who in the picture? Calmer seas and better sunsets ahead Wes.

That's a great pic Paul. I'll think of Wes on the next sunset cruise. Thanks for keeping us in the loop.

Yeah, he a really nice guy. When I first started looking for a Trojan, he contacted me on this forum because he noticed I was in CT. My wife and I went up and took a tour of his boat in Clinton CT. I hope the boat finds a good home, I know he would want that.
