    The "Goat" always takes a bad rap. A buddy of mine told me they used to purposely rig Goats for airdrop wrong just to let them hit the ground. Than a couple places airborne train have some buried where they fell.
    There is a guy in Port Clinton, Ohio, an ex-Marine who has one with a cable spooler in the back, tried to use it in his yacht towing and salvage business. Can't say as it did well here on Lake Erie due to the freeboard, but it looks to be in good shape. The guys last name is Brand, and they own a local marina. He has it for sale, but is asking way too much for it as far as I'm concerned. About 16,000.00. But its the only one I know of here abouts.

    Last fall I counted 72 Goats. They have added more since then. I have talked to the yard guy and he said they have to be de-milled but there is no money in the budget so they will just sit.
