Rice has asked HOST if we have any ideas on how to launch a safety boat during

Kim volunteered to allow a vessel to share the Kahului boat house which
CIC rents from the State. The boat
would have to live in the water. Another
suggestion is to get slings and have them available to utilize Young Brothers to
launch a vessel with a fork lift.
