    FYI, not sure if this known or not but I just got off the phone with Bennett Marine and was informed Tom (Tabman) from Bennett Marine has just recently passed away.

    It is a comment on how people just pop in and never look to see if the topic has been covered. Nothing insensitive intended.

    Maybe the mod's can just delete this whole thread? No one intended any offense and I would hate to have one of his family or co-worker stumble on it and misinterpret.
