WELL, SOMETIMES I FEEL THAT WAY, THIS IS A 1906 REAL CHINESE JUNK THAT WAS SUNK IN 2002, THEN SAT ON LAND, UNCARED FOR 13 MONTHS.

I HAVE BEEN RESTORING IT EVER SINCE.

I AM NOT RICH, SO THINGS GO AS I CAN.

THE HULL IS TOTALLY REBUILT AND MOST EVERYTHING ELSE IS TOO.

I HAVE A WEBPAGE ON THE INTERNET. JUST FIND CHINESE JUNK RESTORATION IN FLORIDA!!

CHEERS, CHARLES GATCHELL
