WOW, talk about capturing the Spirits of the Past. It looks great and should capture the Spirit of today's Surfmen giving them a reminder of what a Surfman in the past had to do. CA
Beautiful work. I'm ready to reenlist for another 6 years in the Coast Guard. Your work "in Harm's Way" brought back some chilling thoughts to me---some at times I wish I could forget, but in another way, I pray I never do. PA
