Farewell all

It is with extreme heavy heart that we lost our beloved B40 to hurricane Sally. She was number 17, and a very little used freshwater boat when we bought her. Currently only has 150 engine hours logged. I hope all the best to you guys and hope you never have to endure this kind of tragedy. WayneSee More

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( mrs.katekwame@yahoo.com ) for the full details.
Have a nice day
Thanks God bless.


Kate Kwame.
