Ah yes,

Sure is , the gov serfs are awash in millions of envelopes , its safety in the herd effect.

AS a reality note most overseas banks send cash , and Antwerp dealers send diamonds thru the mail .

If there is an address?
*Ask your mail carrier if they can tell when there is money in an envelope. Assuming you have a good relationship with the carrier, they will tell you they can. Handling the mail daily for 6-700 mailboxes each day develops some interesting skills. They also know when you are behind on your payments, when you are getting in financial trouble by getting more credit cards and lots of other interesting things. The postal inspectors get tips from customers and other carriers about who is skimming the mail, set them up in a sting and fire them fairly regularly.

I am with FF.

I just had all my personal info used ta gain access to my credit.

Man did these guys ever have some fun from the bills I have seen.

But wow what a pain in the arse.

Cash on hand is far easier to limit compared to available credit these days.

Can I send a check.
*I'll give you my address.* Make it out to cash and for a small handling fee I will make sure Doug and John get some of it. :>))

Re: Donations!!!!

Thanks for making the donation process super easy. I appreciate all that's being done and the input from you all even if my current boat is only a wannabe trawler.

*Dan:*

There are a lot of "wannabe trawlers" on this site. (Including my boat.) I think the trawlering that is prevalent here is more a "lifestyle/hobby" thing and not actually the boat.

******* Don't get me wrong, I love my boat but it doesn't fit my image of a real "trawler."

****** It's more of an express boat that won't get on plane.
