    No secret, boats are money pits, but, 24 million, you should be able to drive it off the lot. Guess its not exactly a Buick.

    The state bought the boat while it was docked in Louisiana get off "finishing touches" done. But it sat in Louisiana too long and expired the warranty on the purchase so the sale has been finalized and we get stuck with a piece of crap.

    Who bought it and approved the sale should be investigated.

    Software problems?
    Call in Jeff Zeints.
    He can get the front end of the messed up new ferry working pretty quick.
    The back end will likely take a while...or, never work at all....[whistling]
