A check for $14.89…courtesy of the GCCF
Oh yeah…nope, not kidding at all:
“If you charter the ‘Searose’ for a day from Dunedin City Marina, you’re bound to catch a bouquet of fish for dinner. Captain Dan Adams, who sits at her controls, says the start to the summer has been good.
“We’re right in our season,” explained Adams. But Adams’ small, fishing charter business is still hurting from last summer, when he says he lost 90% of his clients during the Gulf oil spill. His BP claim is in the tens of thousands of dollars. The one-year Gulf oil spill anniversary came and went and Adams’ BP claim went unpaid. Then, the check came.
“My first check from GCCF since last July and it was for a whopping $14.89 cents,” he said while showing us the check.”
Even though the GCCF eventually got around to making a more substantial final offer, Adams feels it’s still far too low, and like many others has felt it necessary to contact his local officials for help.
