The video is a bit dated (notice the old deck)...but Henry seems ready to raise that money and I think he'll do it.

I seen it. Thats great how the museum got coverage for this weekend and also put the word out as to how much help is actually needed. Hopefully that guy can pull some of his contacts to help get the boat repainted.

Rick:

Do you have a comprehensive sailing list for all years of the Batfish?  Henry and I are specifically looking for crew members serving out of New Orleans between June 59 and July 60. 

Thanks,

Ron

Unfortunately I do not have a crew list from those years.   This is something that I can research, but it will be after OCT befor I can work on it.  I just got word that I can go to the HNSA converence next month and there is a lot of prep for that.   and Oct is the Cub Scout day.

Here is the bossman with Mr. Flanders aboard the Target BB... he was awake, alert, and intelligent (but we hopefully will change those bad habits at the next HNSA conference...  )   :2funny:
