        Hi Nathan-</P>


        Right now if you coax the organ to life it makes some angry tug boat moans. There are probably lots of dead notes and stops but considering how obnoxious the noise was we didn't leave it on long enough tofind out. We were told $30k would releather it andmake it usable but we're aiming for a full restoration instead. Luckily it has never been modified, or suffered physical damage so restoration will be relatively straight forward. Pending funding, we're going the full "punish the organist" route and restore it exactly as it was built.It hasn't been used regularly since the 1960's so its a great candidate in my opinion!</P>
