Howdy from Alabama

Howdy All, Butch G. out of Mobile Alabama, USA, on the beautiful Gulf of Mexico.
Salvaging an Avon 341 Ocean View RIB from the 2000 Americas Cup. Boat
was used for AC keel inspections in Auckland. It will be our tender Tender.
Will have the usual questions and the occasional seeking of advice.

A before and work-in-progress pic of my trash pile treasure.

Thanks for the welcome Maximus. Not much of a fisherman here, but I'll
eat my fair share (and my unfair share) of some shrimp fo'sure.

Main ride . . . hmmm. I guess it depends on who you ask. My wife, who is
a red headed adrenaline junky, will say its our Prindle 19' catamaran.
Myself, who has learned the patience and artistry of a slow sail with a
good bourbon, will say its our Catalina 30.

The debate continues unabated in our household
