• Inventory Status – Frank opened another box that was also filled with cards of submarines. Bob’s daughter has posted some of the cards on facebook but hasn’t received any inquiries.
• Bill Anderson got an estimate for a paint job on the sub float for $1,500 from Paintz by Sam. Paintz by Sam has painted many vehicles. There is a life time warranty on the paint. A $750-dollar deposit would be necessary and it could be done in two weeks. Also it was mentioned that it would be nice to have the boat on motor mounts to prevent further damage. A motion was made to vote on having Paintz by Sam paint the sub. The motion carried and the base will have Paintz by Sam paint the sub float.
• Galin mentioned that he would like to have the float in the Trump parade in Washington DC.
