I had him do my engine survey in 2007 and subsequently, in following years, some work on my 8v92's. Just a super guy and excellent mechanic. I know he had some pretty severe tragedies in his personal life a few years back (wife died very suddenly, daughter had health issues) . Sorry to hear of apparent new issues.
You might try calling Art Cox at Anchor Bay East yard and marina in Dundalk. They know Tom well. Also Gale Browning at Hartoft surveyors in Annapolis.
