When someone finds it on channel 8's website post it here to let us know please. :)

Sorry guys, I don't think that they are going to put it online. They don't do that for any story, thats people that pull it off their T-VO  or run TV through their computers. This is the only thing mentioned about the Batfish as well with all the other days stories:

But you could call and get a transcript if you really wanted to see it and post it on You Tube yourself.

Slight change of plans for the better... my car won't be worked on until next week.  So, I will definitely be down at the boat this Saturday.

I'll be down to the boat around 10:00 a.m.  I want to hook up the speaker wire to the con. reproducer before the ceremony in lieu of the Memorial Weekend event.
