Time for the update today is Monday August 24th. I called the guy twice. I left him 2 messages and verified with his place of business that he is in town. The guy is ducking me!! I will call him in the morning and tell him if I do not hear from him by the end of the business day then I will be calling the Sherriff!!! I really love all your sugestions from the rope & tree to float and go, but I don't want any responsibility for the guys old ass boat! I will keep you guys updated!
