What are your thoughts on this?
No it was orders from the Boss ( I could not trash it) the Kuwaiti's are the Jews of the Arab World and everything is about business there,I was told to salvage this thing anyway possible. (The Jew thing was not disrespect but respect BTW) I worked hard and had a reputation as someone they did not have to check on all the time managing their interests.




My Boats: I stayed in the mass specific side with the frontal areas (there was not enough weight there to ever push the boat under) adding any more pad or bottom would have made for a horrible running boat.(it does not take much) The Heavy boat Design built light syndrome. Plus I had recovery built into the the forward portion of the tunnel.

Good question,I have to look at the rules but again I would do the boat right down the class line and move the bottom around to match the weight it has to carry.

Thanks that will keep me busy Monday on the phone.
