    Rest in peace pirate

    Started looking for my buddy. Called the Pickensville Pirate Marina Cove, to learn it isn't there any longer.

    In a past post here, he had posted up he was taking over Smithville Marina.

    I called there to learn that just before Ed signed the papers to take over that marina, he was killed in a car crash.

    Rest In Peace Buddy.
    You have been a Great Friend.
    You will be remembered.

    Sorry I'm tagging onto this so late but I've been experiencing my own health issues and haven't checked into this site in a long, long time. Pirate carried a wealth of information and knowledge that will be missed by many, and may he RIP...
