Boat guy turns 60, (the new 50, right?)

Boat show guy lr

Honestly, I have no idea why I snapped this boat show self portrait outside the elevators at my FLIBS hotel, but isn’t it funny how the ceiling fan accidently suggests my propeller-head nature? I’m 60 years old today, friends, and I’m taking the day off.

Please don't regard him as an "expert"; he's getting quite old and thinks that "fadiddling fumble-putz" is a more accurate description.
