    Hi Claudia, Yes I live in Palm Beach County. I’d be interested in taking a look at it, maybe sometime next week? Let me know. Thanks,
    Bob OBrien
  6. Hi Bob,
    When do you suggest you'd like to come look at the bass? Next weekend (Nov 20-Dec2) is out. And I go out of town December 6 for 10 days. Other than that I think we can work around the rest of my schedule. Do you phone text?

    Yes phone text would be good. I’ll e-mail you my cell number. I can arrange to be in Pompano Beach during a weekday, maybe Wednesday or Thursday.
