I don't know why this situation has not come to light into the public "eye". For some reason this is being kept quiet, as far as the owner goes, he kept his moth shut and wanted the boat fixed---and that's what he got. He got a full credit for the engine and drive package originally purchased for the boat and moved onto bigger power.
I recieved a PM from Tres Martin today. He basically told me "his side" of the story. I want to make it clear that I was just telling the story of what I knew about the situation. My aplogies to Tres, it was in no way to harm him or his business. I actually met Tres at a OSO party a few years ago during the Miami show and he was a cool guy to talk with. His reputation from what I know is exceptional. What I will also say is that this is a public forum and maybe the people involved, Tres, Dragon, etc... can tell their side of the story. My ONLY intention was to say that the owner, EricT, is now a very happy customer with his boat and that's what really does matter. It's his boat and his money.
Here's a few things Tres had to say. (I will not "aire out" the rest he had to say.)
"Boat #1 goes well over 95 after I set it up. Boat #2 runs 98 with 525s. Ther are a lot more to this story that what people know. I have been watching OSO very closely with desapoitemnt, I take a lot of pride in what I do."
"Dragon # 2 is very elegantly rigged and becasue I got to do it my way, it is in Ocala and it runs well over 95MPH"
"boat #3 was started by us in Fort Lauderdale when it had to go to the interior shop and stayed there for 2 months. In that time we moved to Ocala. I told Craig to bring it to me so I could finish and I would also dial it in when it was finished. They said they did not want to bring it here and they would do it there and deliver it to the customer. "
