His personal joy at getting his boats is one thing, the manner in which he expressed it seems slightly uncaring there was no mention of anyone else's anguish just himself when the general trend of this thread is to wish everyone affected well!

Re: Save the WWGP...

Its $120 for 2 x 18"x12" photography prints, an 18"x12" art print, a tee from the selection and including worldwide shipping, this is still allot of money but not as expensive as your post suggests!
