I talked with Bobby Brown a few times. It turned out that it wouldn't be cost effective to get him over to Mobile. He sure seemed like a nice guy on the phone. It's too bad we couldn't work something out, but it would have cost us double the survey price to get him there. We would have loved to use him.
We ended up hiring Lee Creekmore and are doing the survey on Thursday. He's listed on the SAMS site and has been surveying since at least 1995. Hope it works out well. If the survey goes well, we will be at Turners doing a few upgrades when you come to splash. Stop by and say hi. I'll have some cold beers ready. I need to get a SailNet burgee so you'll know where to find me.
Thanks for the offer to look at the boat for us. Your just getting there a couple of weeks too late. Too bad you couldn't have sold your house quicker!!
