Hi OC,

I sure hope the storm helps to break it up. It's been very ugly down there.

Everything from shellfish to big grouper, even manatees have been killed. The city periodically will pick up all the dead fish with front end loaders haul them off and bury them. Off the coast dead fish are floating all over the place, bouncing off your hull and hitting the props. Hope it breaks up soon it will be a year in January. I guess one should have expected it to be bad if it formed at a time when it was least likely too.

Greg.
