If you're in contact with Greg, ask if he wants me to go to his shop and get his Don Davis. I think he was having a fuel pump issue with it (plus I'm not sure how much of a help that little boat would be pushing a big boat) but if there's no other option…

I have not talked to Greg, just Chrissy. None of them know exactly where they are. If you have Greg's number please call him.

Don't hesitate to call 911 if needed. That's what us hard working folks pay taxes for.
Hope all goes well.

Okay I will head out soon with some refreshments. Btw you shouldn't be charged for fire rescue unless there is a transport. They are there to help. I work FR. If there is any medical problem what so ever please use them. The system is abused more than it is used correctly. This is a correct use if there is a medical or health problem.
