Keeping my fingers crossed.............

We are very close to an agreement to tow the Zuni-Tamaroa from Baltimore to Norfolk. Once we're in Virginia, the fund raising to restore the ship can begin in earnest. She's touched a lot of lives in her 51 years of service. That's why many of us are very adamant about saving her. As the Tamaroa, she saved the lives of 4 helicopter crew during the Perfect Storm in 1991. The "Damn Tam" as she was affectionately known was strong enough at age 48 to endure 40 foot seas and 100 knot winds to rescue the downed aircrew.
