Probably won't be much info, looks like this is going legal. Currently lawyering up. I HATE insurance companies.

Re: Nauticat 52 Refit

I saw a nice N50 up in PT on the 5th....I was hoping it was you. Terrible news.....the boat must be like a member of the family. I remember when you were trying to power thru the flu last winter...for the big moment when it was all together, all at once. Most of us just have to keep plugging and its never all done all at once. A gross injustice for which I hope you are able to get satisfaction.
