The following passage was added to the article without references, and the tone seems a bit POV: Mr. Nelson also contributed to the design progress of the IMS rule, having drafted such competitive racers such as Ptarmigan for Mr. Laurence Dickie of Riverside CT, one of the last IMS boats ever built. Significant controversy surrounded the build of the last in a series of Ptarmigans, since Mr. Nelson may have been aware that the IMS rule was going to be abandoned and Nelson/Marek proceeded with the build anyway. Drew Friedes, aka "Jody", subsequently left N/M design after a heated debate concerning design royalties from the ID-25, which Jody played a large part in designing. Mr. Friedes in now an investment banker. --Kevin Murray (talk) 22:28, 25 July 2008 (UTC)
