    Captain Taplin walked the plank two weeks ago and is currently in the bilges. He took a fall on the way into his swim class and has thrown his back out. Nothing is broken but he's in need of intensive physical therapy to get back on his feet.

    Please forgive any delay in response to calls or emails as he's got limited connectivity in the skilled nursing facility but he will appreciate any well wishes as his spirits are a bit low.

    His daughter Beth is helping out with the parts business while he's out of commission so feel free to call or text her at 714-270-3043 if you have a missing or open order and she can check on it for you. Any cards can be sent to her at

    8692 Larthorn Drive Huntington Beach CA 92646

    and she'll get them to him. He has his family at his beck and call and they are really hoping to spring him from the brig in time to celebrate his 92nd birthday on March 6th!
