In respecting Jim's request not to send a donation in his name to the Red Cross, I have received many private emails that we should still do something for Jim. What the majority want is a plaque and a gift cert. to West Marine or Boat U.S.. I would like to do this as follows: Make check out to Continuous Wave C/O Jay Murray, send to ATR Distributing Co. P.O. Box 85 Cleves, Ohio 45002. Please include your user name and real name to be included on the plaque or gift cert.. In the past the amounts given ranged from $10-$100. I'll keep it open until the end of Nov. so we can send it to Jim for Christmas. Also I'll keep the amount posted weekly. Regards, Jay

Our first check came in this morning. As mentioned I'll up date the total at the end of each week. Also,no checks will be deposited until the end of Nov. We have had another great suggestion, to buy the Whaler model Nauset from the Danbury Mint. I'll keep you all posted. Regards, Jay

I would like to thank JFM for following through with this very good idea (and keep this post on top).

Jay,

I sorry I did not post my check last week. It was my daughters 2nd birthday, and mama had me running! We had 40 adults and kids, it was great.

Well, to the point: This effort you have undertaken is a great one. I'm sending you my contribution of $100.00 today.

I'm also going to keep pushing this thread to the top, so members can see it. I really think we are all so much enriched by this site, it would be very poor behavior of us as people not to give back to Jim.

PS: Took my cousin-in law on the 25 yesterday in the sound. Some swells and chop, wind about 25 knots. He loved the boat, and we definatly caught air a few times. Great ride. He invited me to go fishing to the canyon later this month, about a 100mi offshore in his Stamas 31. Should be a blast.

Jay,
I just wrote myself a reminder, so I will be sending you a check tomorrow. By the way I sure miss that Cincinnati chili.

I sent a little something this morning.
The Whaler model Nauset from the Danbury Mint sounds like a good idea.

Jay-

Great idea, and thanks for taking the bull by the horns; I'll send my check forthwith.

Cincinnatti, Huh? Maybe we can meet up down there sometime - we have some close friends in Cincinnatti we visit from time to time and I usually pull my boat down with us. I've been up the Licking River about 12 or 15 miles, and from Meldahl Dam to North Bend on the Ohio - we put in at Boatsmith near California. I'd really like to lock through Meldahl sometime and explore that next pool upriver; a conservation officer I ran into down there said he'd patrolled the entire river and that was the prettiest stretch.

Sorry for the O.T.-

The vast amount of information on this site has resulted in a considerable saving of time and money for me and I am sure many others, I am sending out a check today.

Thanks again for your support!
noswah, the Cincy chili is great( Skyline, GoldStar,Empress) they have all made quite an addition to my girth.
kingfish, any time you come in to Cinti. let me know. We took a river boat cruise on the Delta Queen through the Meldahl locks, it was quite an experience. I live in the North Bend on a hill that overlooks the river. We usually head down river for our trips to the Markland Dam in Indiana. Regards, Jay

A huge "thank you" to jim h for all of his efforts over the years - this site, I dare say, has enriched all of our daily lives; and another huge thanks to Jay for organizing this effort. Well done!

As Whalerdoc says, this site provides enrichment in many ways. It also provides a sense of community by providing a regular meeting place for so many of us with vastly different backgrounds, but with a common interest.

Thank you, Jimh, for providing this for us.

I am very pleased to make a contribution and thank Jay for pulling it together.

Terry

I mailed in my contribution also. This board has given me a safety net so to speak. Itís a good place to bounce ideas or get advise from a vast number of people and experience levels. I find this resource to be invaluable being new to boat ownership.
