    Does anyone have more info on this? Would this involve only the gulf or the atlantic as well?

    Brad, I would think that with Cap elliots making the move they are.. they might know something that the rest of us dont. I hope its just a rumor, but one yft and 5bft per boat per day would really suck. (I saw those figures posted on the other board. Probably speculation) I hope someone that really knows can get us an answer.
