Hey Bobby, is it passing through or lingering? The Gun just stays on the hoist when the storm comes through huh? Do you tie it down or what?? That seems a little sketchy at high speed wind gusts.

Tank-

It's in the gulf now on it's way to Louisiana. Usually we try not to have it on the lift during a storm, but incase it is, we tie it down. I think the winds would have to be around 150mph in order for the boat to actually go flying. It was only about 40mph.

LS JR.

Hey Kitten,
Ya I saw Jim about an hour ago, I've never seen him pissed like that. He said I-10 is a parking lot....he's probably thinking, how the hell am I going to get out of here.
