RE: Could This Be "The One"?

I know that Rodriguez has two Ship Yards located in Bayou La Batre, AL (That's Forest Gump land).* They build shrimp boats, rig boats, tugs, etc.* Pretty big operation and well respected.* Not sure if they are also located in Louisiana.

My bad.... it probably was AL, not LA. Silly me for lumping anything with Bayou in the name into LA.

RE: Could This Be "The One"?

We're hoping to.* There's currently an accepted offer on it, but the buyer is running out of time for his due diligence (survey & sea trial), so our fingers are crossed.

My main concern at this time is the ability to get insurance w/o a ticket.* At 76' she falls in the range where insurance companies get wary.

For those that are interested, here are some additional photos.
