    To my long time good friend Bob Saylor. I called him Cobra for the fire engine red Cobra sports car he had. It was the best thing for both of us when he sold that thing. So many great days on the water, midnight cruises, late night in the pool and hot tub. Cobra was a very inventive and creative builder. Huge vision in design. Bob was always generous and included everyone in the fun. He truly loved his wife and son. They meant so much to him. His greatest loss would be leaving them too early. I hope I never forget him.
