    Guys,
    This is good. I’m a musician. I love the background music. Something “Tupelo Honey”.. Who is it? and what title? You didn’t credit the artist at the end.
    I discovered Walt Wilkins from your NY30 video of “Alera”. Am a devoted fan and enjoyed him in person several times.
    Keep ’em coming

      Hey John. It’s Kevin Welch. It’s an instrumental version of “Answer Me That” which Kevin’s folks mixed for us. You’re in for a nice journey discovering his work.

    When folks ask my advice on how big a vessel to buy my stock answer it to think of the absolutely smallest vessel that they think they need and then cut that in half. That is the vessel they will have the most fun with.
