David, Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family, we hope you can get back on your feet soon. From skipper and crew of Evolution #99 and the Detroit fleet at large

P.S I wouldn’t ask otherwise in this situation but you brought it up, but I’d be interested in the mast head kite or any other sails that you’d be willing to sell

:: David --
::
:: 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...
