Re: Pitch In And Help

As far as folks helping in the USA, We had 3 trucks full of the stuff needed to move this boat from it's spot on the beach, and 12 Cajuns ready to move it to deeper water ! but then we found out it was in FL not Mississippi !! So I sorta think you folks from other places that think we don't help folks here got another think comming!! Knothead and others show that if ya have a problem, folks will come to help !! Most of us would still have come to help Knothead but the distance and the fuel bill would have left us sleeping on the beach next to the boat !! LOL I really wish we could be there, but Im sure things will be taken care of properly by the sailors down there in FL.

Re: Pitch In And Help

Nothing like folks who help without any thought of rewards!!" Grats" and I think this shows what sailors can do when they put there backs into it !!!!
