Hi Jo Ann,

I went to the Blessey Marine website where they have a generic "contact us" button. I put my e-mail to Mr. Blesseys attention and asked if his company had ever had an accidents with loss of life. I also asked if he had ever actually been aboard the DQ to see first hand how safe it is. Also asked if he and Oberstar where friends and if Oberstar had asked him to write this letter. He mentioned something in the letter about the DQ's hull being penetrated and the boat sinking like a rock. Um, double hull and watertight doors? Again more mis-information. Blesseys probably unaware that the original hull was covered with a new hull in the 90's and lets not mention the flame resistant paint again.

Sha'll we coin a new phrase: Money talks and walking fertilizer......well walks.
