We fully agree with the statements of page 8 on the Pro and Con of the three proposed solutions however, I believe option 4 may also be a solution. Those notes are included in the attachment.

We also believe in the relationship given on page 11, but think a bit more depth is required.  From page 14 on it we are in disagreement. Although there is a thought process in these pages, it does not seem to reflect what is going to be necessary in catastrophic destruction such as that delivered from hurricane Sandy or even earlier hurricane Kristina.

Sincerely,

Mark Enzmann
