A friend of mine drove up there who has a boat in the building and the statement by Skipper Bud’s is that only 4 boats had any fire damage and the rest will be fine, including the building…..well see.

Yeah,I know it has to bring back some bad memories for you Rick.
I hope all works out well for those who stayed for the winter.
It's ironic that our drystack contact is sitting here on the to be paid shelf....think i'll wait to send it back.

As a firefighter it is great to go to a call. Sometimes you get that call that really hits home. Having children makes some runs very personal. This would be a pretty personal run as a boater.

Oh boy!!! $12M in damage i guess!!!

Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy horsepower. And I've never seen a sad person hauling a$$!
