Hull #1029, two owners are on record in the database, last C34IA Membership expired in 2015, neither owner is a Mr. Lay.  I have to check on a later database record on my desktop computer in a few hours.

Later check revealed nothing newer than this report.  We don't know the new (3rd or 4th) owner.
