Re: Flooding in Louisana

(T&D folks fix those) And yes it is a 24/7/365 plant. Our main customer is the Exxon/Mobil refinery and chem...

Re: Flooding in Louisana

Yes it is a HELL of a mess! We got just a few inches in our house. But of course that means all flooring was ruined. Just enough to make us cut the wall board/paneling and such to dry out the walls. We have a LOT to do in order to get the house back up to snuff. But we were blessed as there are a wh...

But as we get more experienced in life (Old goats :doh: ) It takes a lot longer to heal. (And we don't bounce as good or as high as we used to)

Re: Storm and flooding

Everything is wet here. But not flooding.

Talked to Lester a couple days ago. Lake Texoma is flowing over the flood-way for only the fourth time in history of the lake.

I have seen Gravois boats down here for DECADES! Saw one of the new Bay Boats at a boat show in Gonzales, LA last year up close and personal.

Re: Anchors

I've never seen it done, but it would seem logical, especially where the anchor/chain is continually on view on a pulpit where rust is ugly. My experience with vinyl-coated steel chain has been disappointing... I use stainless steel anchor chains and shackles on my boats........... No rust problems...
