Good for you Greg. Hopefully it will still be worth something and you can recover some of your lost $$$. This will be an interesting story as it unfolds

On another note, It looks like I will be down in the area next week to get some work done on the boat and do some Alligator, err, I mean Gladiator shopping. Lets get together for cocktails ??

A big question would be - is the boat complete, and what kind of shape is it in now?

I hope it works out for you Greg.

Good luck. Just be really, really sure the DEA says it is "clean" before you take it back. You sure don't need any future headachs.

Wow. Amazing that they found it, and were able to track you down. Keep us informed. This will be interesting, I'm sure.

But why would the DEA have it? Did Harris sell it to some nice businessman from Columbia?

I had an SUV that was recovered by the DEA and when they asked me if I wanted to come and see it and decide if I wanted it back the storage fees were in the thousands because I couldn't get it back until the court case was over, the windows were down the whole time and they sliced through the back seats with a knife and tore them open, so I told them just keep it, and I got my isurance to cover the loss, the only good thing was I did get some of my little stuff I did have in the suv like cds componet sets etc...don't want to get you down just want to let you know what you might want to expect they dont really give a rats azz about anybody stuff.
