Batfish Torpedoes
« on: March 20, 2008, 02:30:45 PM »
Gents, I know we talked a few weeks ago on the torpedoes in WA. The cost obviously higher because of the 21 foot torpedo and enclosed van to move the what I thought both were 8 feet just will not work for loading and unloading.  Flat bed is the only way to get the torpedoes to you.  As I understand  the chocks need to be made for transport and of course some more funding. How are you coming along with this?  The time alloted is 6 months to move these?

Chris, send this in an email to Rick and the other gentleman who emailed you a week or two ago.  I don't think that Rick checks this forum very much and I am like Sgt. Schultz when it comes to this particular operation - I know nothing!

We had email conversation a week ago.  A few things need to be addressed concerning chocks and the actual costs to transport. I believe he said in two weeks he might have it all together.  We have no issue getting in a truck to get it to the Batfish. We can rock when you are ready.

Mark S. - your yellow tag line is hard to read on the new color scheme.

Just an FYI...or maybe it's just me.   ???

Hopefully things will be set from now on in white.

You just like messing with people, right?   ;D

I thought I was in the wrong place the first time I came back after your change...
