You did a great job with your article. I am the Public Relations person for the Commander Club website and club. Due to my additional comments with the Coast Guard I am departing my role as the public relations person on the committee for the club. Would you consider taking over as it is already set up and the rest of the executive committee are super helpful. Call or e mail me if you would consider the position so I can provide more information. John Heenan 954+520-4553

PS Our Website person Pam Sorenson must live near you as you have the same zip code

Good luck with your restoration. I also own a 451 which I bought in 2013 and restored it. The process and end results were well worth the challenge
