Good news! Now just a matter of getting it back to you. Gonna be an interesting tale to tell at the gathering?

If someone can get it close to the GA/AL line, I'll try to meet them and get it to B'ham. Then to about the MS/TN line.

Very glad the boat was found and coordinated efforts are being made to return it. Count me in for 5 or 6 hours driving if it gets out my way. Heard something about Oklahoma might be its destination.
Maybe someone could go through a drive through muffler shop somewhere, I’d pitch in $$ for one.

I talked to Kevin B via Facebook. He said he will check in to the forum as his trip next week through Hartwell gets closer and see what the current situation is then. Reynolty, his username here is bulldogboater.

So grateful for everyone's help. Spent almost 10 hours on the road today and are now stopped at Albuquerque for the night.

My inlaws offered to complete the last leg of any relay towards their home in OKC- not sure which direction Kevin is headed but if his trip works out along with the other handoffs this might just be possible!

Thanks again to everyone, will continue to update

I can meet someone on I-20 near the AL/GA line. I'd bring the boat to my house in B'ham. I can make arrangements to take it toward Memphis up I-22/US78 AL/TN line. From Memphis it's I-40 to OKC.

So glad to hear it has been found! I'm in SC, about an hour from Hartwell, but in the wrong direction (east). I could offer some free storage here, or possibly meet someone in Atlanta on Saturday.

I can meet Red! and, get it to Memphis. I'm sure Lauren would love to go and spend the night at the Peabody!
