Richie, you're bloviating, and irrelevantly.

Those are simply opinions of yours. They might even be facts. But, even if facts, they are irrelevant because they do not appear to be part of the...

The appeal brief would be in the court clerk's office of the New York State Supreme Court, Appellate Division, Third Department, which is in Albany. I'm not sure...

You asked about lashing more than once in the OP.

I'm not sure exactly what the topic is, but it seems to be related to the terminology of tumblehomed sides. I've long been interested in canoe history and have written about it occasionally.
