Aw shucks, Mike, I didn't know you cared. I'm doing ok, thanks for asking... was a basket case for six months but that stuff fades in time. I moved to Ft Myers and hope to have another boat by next spring.

That looting chit is overrated-- I nearly threw my back out lugging that tv around.

I'm afraid so... all the deck lids and engine housing were gone, outdrive was broken at gimbal ring and hanging by the drive bellows, swim platform was broken off and the next hurricane blew a storm surge into the berth and trashed it. It was nearly a month before I could arrange for a crane to lift it out-- turned out to be very tricky and dangerous because of the angle and the mangled lift. Adding up the money and the hassel factor, it was a no-brainer to cut it loose and start fresh. Sure do miss her, though... 12 years was a LOT of memories.

Best wishes, Donna
See you never know what might happen....... LOL I must have been a physic and knew something good would come out of this, just think if it wasn't for Charlie you might not be flying around in helicopter shooting pics of some of the hottest offshore events, or riding on a 50' Nortech that is in a race against time to beat Reggie's record.

I also noticed that Todd Lahey posted a generous offer of help, that was before we had the raffle on his cig so he could fight his battle with Leukemia. All the BS aside this is one heck of a caring community.

It's pretty crazy. The 5 year anniversary of Charley is in 3 days...

Hard to believe.
