    Back on August 25, 2008, I sent you a request to post a For Sale ad on sailingtexas.com. It was for our Catalina 16.5 sailboat located in Galveston, TX. Unfortunately, our boat was destroyed in Hurricane Ike (as were most other boats at the Galveston Boat Club). Fortunately, I had it fully insured.
    Thank you very much for this service and your personal help. We will continue sailing in another way, and will keep sailingtexas.com as a Favorite site. Best wishes in your own enjoyment of sailing.
    Houston, Texas
