I have been searching for it(the thread) and can't find it. I am sure thats what they said. And like you I made just about the same comment.

Not only met them, I employ two of them. They've done some silly things but nothing that bad. I, howeve,r have painted myself into a corner- literally. I'm a firm believer in smart people doing stupid things.

but look at the recycling value of the aluminum...

Since we are on the subject........check this chit out JIM DARR. You can call them directly at Lake Cumberland and then post back with all of the info under screen name goobersmoocher.

This will be a very good hull to speculate on with no known factual information.
