Next time anyone knows of a good boat stranded on the east coast, let me know via PM or via email to Bene505 *at* hallmont dottt com.

Volunteers -- anyone want to take a crack at freeing a beached sailboat? We ought to get a rescue team lined up, people who could take a day off work and drive a few hundred miles on a moments notice. We could share the effort and investment, and we could share the reward. And since this is the U.S. of Litigation, no suing each other, or don't bother to sign-up.

Let me know if you are interested, via PM.

We could get the sandbags ready and make a list of rental locations for gas-powered pumps. Maybe we could save a good boat or two.
