      Hello Matthew

      You certainly have created some excitement. I am amazed by a few things
      -- how many people simply do not want to know about another item and how
      aggressively they attack this unknown item.

      Just to clarify facts however

      ·We acquired the business 4 years ago and have put it in mothballs due
      to the Joint Strike Fighter win. Now it is time to sell it.

      ·We have never applied for US coastguard approval so they cannot have
      turned us down

      ·We are delighted Porte Bote exists as it indicates market interest and
      tolerance

      ·The FOB has buoyancy in all of its panels and seats -- a by-product of
      the creation of the rigid panel design

      ·It does 17knots+ with a 6hp engine and two people because it is rigid

      ·It is not in production as we have not found the right buyer yet - with
      a $700 million JSF program it has tended to drop to the side a bit

      ·We have over 2500 inquiries now.

      ·There are only 50 boats for the previous designs out there (as seen on
      the video) so no 3^rd party images on the web.

      ·The new design boat has been designed by high end industrial
      specialists for the purpose of building outstanding end product and for
      volume manufacturing.

      ·We are in negotiation with 3 interested parties currently

      Kind Regards

        This email appeared on the bottom of my email list because of the date
        (12/31/05).  Just happened to notice it.  What's with that??  is this part of
        the never-ending funky flatout boat thread that has been going on???  What's
        with the date??  PS: seems to answer some of the questions if it was not
        fabricated like the moon landing and osama's demise.
