Very sorry to hear that about the loss of your boat. The devastation from Katrina is incredible, our prayers go out to your and yours.

You are certainly welcome to SF fleet anytime you get this way.

If your boat is totalled I would be interested in the rudder if its available and not too badly damaged.

Better Luck... Mark Lowry
