Rusty, what became of SuperDave?

Post  Marleysky on Sun Jun 07, 2015 11:43 am

From your post in the redneck .049 starter thread you indicated that you couldn't pick on SD anymore. From his last post I assume he has joined another forum and has taken on the role of the parrot in Monty Pythons famous sketch?

As hard as it was to interpret anything he said, I can't say for sure. But he was in poor health, in his 80s, and he used to post a "permanent" goodby on a predictable basis, but couldn't stay away for more than a couple of weeks. He was pretty blind, but could still type and couldn't resist coming here to affirm his vast knowledge and authority. I believe it's entirely possible that he died. I hope not, but I kind of think that's the case.

Best wishes wherever you are, Dave.
Rusty

Last I/we knew.. he was finishing a Dumas planked-hull speedboat. SuperDave is a long-time CEF member (since Aug. of 2011) I hope he's still with us.

This wasn't his last post.. but one that gives me some hope.

Just last night I was getting to wonder where he was. Hopefully he's alright. Does anyone have any of his contact info? I have the email address he registered with.

Dave hinted that he was planning on doing some travelling. I doubt he has passed away. His last post was that he had better things to do than mess with the forum and was moving on.

I doubt he wants to be contacted although he still maintains an account here.

He knows where we are.

Yeah, you're right, I forgot about that https://www.coxengineforum.com/t7170-signing-off-and-out#90179

Some people just get wore out with hobbies or the interest comes and goes.

Oh, I guess I got a greenie for passing bad information. Somehow I had the impression that he was buying the Farm. He'll probably check in this week to find that news of his death has been greatly exaggerated.
Sorry, ol' boy.
Rusty

Can't speak for the sender of your greenie, but I nearly clicked one for your final comment in wishing SD well.  As I'd told Ron one time, I had the haunting suspicion that Dave was actually my older brother A.J., typing under an assumed identity!  A lot of his posts...word usage and sentence structure...AND grouchy mood swings...aggravating as they could be, would still make me smile, as I thought of my much-traveled older sibling.

Figure that I'm running on the same DNA as A.J., so there may come a day when I'll be trying my friends' patience with a "Now just sit back and let me tell you how it REALLY is..." lecture or two.

Hope everything is well with you ole S.D. ....
