Being a LaveyCraft owner I feel your pain.
We get a little more play in the East and Midwest because Lavey had a successful racing program- apart from that, no one in the East knows them.
Ive always liked OSO and I stay here, but its an East Coast site no doubt, additionally if you are "really offshore" OSO doesnt really have a comprehensive electronics, or Nav section to speak of, leading me to believe most guys here run in good weather to local spots otherwise you'd see a few more radars than you do here.
Performanceboats has a Howard thread and is more West Coast centric.
Thehulltruth has a great electronics forum- but all the guys have center consoles and think 45 is fast.
I think youll find a great group of REALLY FUN guys here that pretty much like any cool boats, and Howard definitely builds a great ride and they have a rich amazing history - you should share it with them so they can appreciate it as well.
