Cool New Orleans Area

Hey everyone, I'm new to the site and I am interested in building my own RV-10, it's been a dream of mine for a long time! Is anyone interested in flying to KASD to give me a tour of their RV-10 so I can see firsthand what they're all about? I can even provide transportation for lunch. Another option would be for me to drive to you, depending on distance. I would like to see a build in progress also. Thanks!

Jered, You need to go right up the road to Bogalusa, LA and see Farley Grantham the FBO at KBXA. He and his son David have a fine one that a buddy of mine built. Farley just got it painted a while back and it is a beauty.
Ask around at Slidell, everyone knows Farley and David.

I guess you would see plenty of tuna then, I used to work in the charter fleet out of Venice and currently own a commercial tuna boat named Whiskey Girl that operates out of Venice. We are always trying to find contacts on rigs because the boat only makes 8knts. Starting in the wrong direction can waste an awful lot of time.
