Boat Building News

My heart and my prayers go out to the people of Boston and all the participants and spectators, especially those who were injured or killed.  As a life long runner I am very aware of the importance of the Boston Marathon.  This is a heinous crime and I am convinced that all of the law enforcement agencies involved in the investigation will find and prosecute the responsible parties.  Anyone who was there and took photos or video should submit copies to the task force working on this.  But as happened at 9/11  we the people proved that we cannot be deterred by terrorism. Hundreds of first responders and volunteers, runners and participants stopped what they were doing and ran to the assistance of those injured despite the danger. We as a people are strong and we care about each other. We refuse to be cowed by senseless violence. Let this be a lesson to those who will try to terrorize us.  You will not succeed!
