FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, United States of America (Free-Press-Release.com) May 20, 2011 -- MORE GOOD NEWS MAY 20, 2001
TO ALL IT MAY CONCERN
We have more good news to report.
1. A delegation from a certain South American country, including the Chairman of the company that is our agent and a big defense contractor in that country, as well as a member of the government, have confirmed that they are arriving on June 12 (I have their flight info) and staying 3 days to do business. Our target date for putting the boat in the water in June 5 (my birthday.. what a great present for me). I have been working this country for over a year.
2. In another country, this one in Central America, our agent has a meeting with the head of the Navy and the Minister of Defense on Monday! I would imagine that soon a delegation from that country will be up for a fast boat ride.
3. We are going to leave the boat in the water all summer to make giving demos easier and certainly will not have to pay the transport back and forth from here in Yakima to the Columbia River.
4. There are now about 12 US Embassies around the world that are pushing the boats for us!!
5. Swiftships, with whom I have a long relationship, has now agreed to build all the boats that we sell. In fact, they have recently acquired a new boat yard east of their main facility and are looking for work for it.
Letís keep praying for a swift contract signing so we can start the ball rolling for a rosy future.
UPDATE Wednesday, May 25, 2011, 05:56 PM Posted by Administrator VROOOOOOOOOOM
We are just about ready to send the boat down to Tri Cities and put it in the water. We will be a couple days ahead of schedule and that is a great load off my mind. I will have a couple days to make some runs on the river and hopefully we can get some images to upload to the web site.
It has been a lot of fun working on the boat. If any of you are mechanically inclined, you know exactly what I am talking about. We have been detailing it out and making it look and run top notch for our live ride. We anticipate this to be the first of several demonstrations this summer. We have seen a huge increase in interest of patrol craft over the last several months as a direct result of Tim Sheridan and MDSI efforts.
Tim is going to take some pictures on Friday/Saturday and we are going to see if we can get them posted to the website. This will give you a first hand look at what we have been up to and the amount of work and effort to have this in shape both mechanically and aesthetically.
The GB 12 is 12 meters long. This is 39 feet of craft that weighs 24,000 when loaded. The sponson are a removable item that takes it down to 10 feet 4 inches so we mark the load over width and do not need pilot cars. This saves on transportation costs and makes it road able for moving around once the customer has taken delivery.
In the normal process of putting sponson on and off, running through water, bumping into docks, logs etc they get minor scrapes, bumps and little tears. We have gone over each and everyone, made repairs and are putting a new finish coat and the boat really looks great. We are excited with all the work we are doing and want shareholders to feel the same excitement. This is your company and your companyís product to be proud of.
Thatís it for now, things are going great and this will be a great next couple weeks.
