RE: insurance

When we bought our 34' CHB last July our marine title guy recommended Markel Insurance and we thought the cost was reasonable and it covered spill coverage and environmental clean up.

RE: Carnage in Brookings Harbor, Oregon

I'd agree with that, especially with all the wildfires that burn off ground-holding vegetation. I just thought it came at a interesting time, so soon after all the wave surges on the Calif coast.

Carnage in Brookings Harbor, Oregon

Am wondering if the wave surges Santa Cruz, CA had last week may be the culprit for this disaster.

RE: What's in a name?

Not sure I'd ever do this, but speaking of mothers, my grandmother's name was Alpha Omega Quisenberry....wouldn't want to use the whole thing, but Alpha Omega might be a cool name on a boat.

RE: License plate frame

I think the word "trolling" is the one with the bad connotations, i.e, trolling for hookers. Should be pretty safe with trawling.

As they say, "its only worth what someone is willing to pay." I hope someone, who felt they'd never get a boat bought, will find this and bring it back. If its just TLC that it needs, it will be a...
