Fellow GB Owners,
After much clean-up and rebuilding from Hurricane Katrina, we are proud to say that we are going to be able to host the Gulf Coast Wooden Boat Show again. Our Maritime and Seafood Industry Museum was completely devastated, but our new marina is up and running. The boat show this year will be held at our new facility, which is the home of our famous Biloxi Schooners. We will have an all Grand Banks category, so you Gulf boat owners please make an effort to help us keep our event one of the largest on the Gulf Coast. Most of the casions are re-opened, so there are alot of entertainment opportunities here in Biloxi. Our coast is getting better all the time! Please support us through these trying times, we truly appreciate it.

I'm glad to see you are getting back in business. Exactly where are you? If I come over from Madisonville, will I be able to get a spot if I have a glass boat (GB42CL - 1977)? I don't want to compete in anything, but would just like to support you and enjoy the show.

Our new Marina is between the Hard Rock Casino and the Grand Casino, just east of the Biloxi Yacht Club. You can call the museum office trailer about getting a transient slip, but the marina is between the mainland and Deer Island, and the anchorage there is wonderful. Let me know if I can do anything else to help out. I know there are quite a few GB's in Madisonville, so if you could spread the word about our boat show that would be great. We come over and support Madisonville every year, one of my favorite trips!

Thanks. I have four GB's in my marina (Beau Chene) and there are three or four others on the river. Also, there are a handful over on the Tickfaw off of Maurepas. I'll spread the word.
