Lloyd, I have contacted the CYA twice via their website and haven't heard anything from them, so I gave up, but if you have a contact here on the East Coast you can hook me up with, I'd really appreciate it. I'm a member of the Antique Classic Boat Association, and they have been amazing, but most of their boats are smaller...and I'd love to get involved with CYA, assuming they are active in my neck of the woods. (I'm not sure they are...either that or the website doesn't function very well...)

Too funny re the Elco Patrol Torpedo Boat!

Thanks for the welcome and encouragement!
