For those that didn't know Lee, here's a short story about him, written last year, I think; http://www.jetskiworld.gr/articlevie...ng.php?id=3254
Lee was one of those rare individuals. He was extremely talented, and very intelligent. He was also very personal. I had the opportunity to meet and hang out with him a few years ago, and more recently, had breakfast with him. I will always remember the times I spent watching him test/tune some new hull/engine combination down at Body Beach, and tossing the stick for his dog, Bentley.

"Behind the Scenes" really just doesn't sum it up for him. In reality, for the last 5 years, almost every open-class ski that came to the line, had some type of Manville hull win the race, or at a minimum fill most spots in the top five.
I never met the man... but I've seen his work. Truly inspiring. I had no idea he was sick.
