    For those not in the know, can you expand a little on what he did in the FE boating community?

    I personally couldn't detail all the things, but there were some great photos from back in the day at the funeral. He was the brother to Ed who makes the shafts. Dee was the guy behind multiple prop ideas including "dial a prop", Dee started Hughey boats and had the idea of the cable flex outboard system. He also created instant foam boats. I certainly know all these things were documented, there were also speed runs from back then too, but have no specifics to the numbers. He was a great guy to talk to, I will miss him watching all the races.
