Hans, you a great guy with a big heart. Only a few of us really know how much hard work you have personally put into the Trust. It is greatly appreciated by myself, Jennifur and all your friends here at OSO and Ft. Myers Offshore. Thank you.
Bob.

I will likely carry about 25 gals of extra fuel for insurance.

Good job. That's a great way to make a statement about helping others.

Since RHR hasn't been here yet, I'll say it...... ROCK ON BOB !!!!

Its also a great excuse to get out of the house and office again and have some fun. I will take some nice shots of Havanna Cuba for you if you agree to pick up a yellow and red life raft that might be in your path with a bunch of knuckleheads in it with cameras (hopefully not). I would offer the same but I have a problem landing in the water and I only have 4 seats (one empty).

All good though. Can't wait and I hope the weather holds. It is looking good.

Marc,
If your going to have 1 empty seat on the plane you should auction it off here on OSO I'm willing to bet it would bring some good money.
