    A-Cat in PHRF (or SMS?)

    57 is waaaaaay too high. F'rinstance, PHRF for F-boats: F28R is 21; F25C is -15 (yes, NEGATIVE); F31-1D is -55 The Ports/PHRF conversion sort of works for monohulls but it's way out of line for multihulls. You'll have to see if you can find established PHRF numbers for multis and just make a...

    Oh, for night parades, bring some quarters for the torchières, and FFS, don't fling the money on the ground - those guys work fairly hard

    The Shed

    They did have pretty decent bbq, their potato salad was to die for, and it was kinda fun to go there. Y'all may have seen it on the food channel Fieri show

    You might try some old school NOLA: Bon Ton Café; Camellia Grill a bit away from city center... Russell's Marina Grill (and see NOYC while there); the Galley (Metairie)
