I'm still alive!

Postby SteveNeill » Sun Sep 01, 2013 8:09 pm

Lost my wife to cancer last February. It was a long hard two year fight. Living in Port Hueneme now with my girlfriend Mary. I have a studio for my model building and effects business in Ventura. Still have three good boats to run. Looking to start going to Lake Casitas which is 25 minutes from here. Beautiful lake for RC planes and boats.

I was wondering if there's anyone up here in Ventura CA. That in the SC and wants to run boats and or RC planes.

Miss you guys and the hobby. time to get back into it.

Welcome back, Steve! We missed you. You had better get busy as it appears the 2015 SubRegatta may be in California!

Best,

Welcome home, Steve. Though you well know I've been keeping track of you!

I think of you every time I gaze lovingly at my Seaview! Fine work, my friend.

As I've mentioned, I'll probably have some more boat work for you down the line a bit. We'll talk. And perhaps that discussion can take place on Oct. 4. Looking forward to seeing you then! (Will need an address and/or directions.)

Best,
JeffP

Jeff old buddy thanks for the warm welcome.

That's right we are having an open house for the new Studio in Ventura on the 4th of October between 6-9pm. for those of you in LA and the Ventura area. Ventura is about an hour from LA on the coast.

Best way to keep up with all this stuff is to watch my blog guys: www.steveneill.wodpress.com where I post a daily show called Steve Neill's Garage on all the professional model work I do. There's also the website: www.sneillfx.com and the studio site still under construction: www.steveneillsgarage.com. I'm on Face book too.

Haven't run a sub in awhile but all of them are current and ready to run. Hoping to see some of you bums in SF in October too.

Steve,
It is good to see you posting again. Are out of towners allowed to crash your open house?
Peace,
Tom
If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.
