Default Horba

Anyone know the status of the HORBA site or if anyone is keeping it up? Tried to join for the past couple months but keep getting a "database error" from their server. Sent messages but no response.

HORBA is alive, but sleeping. Yes, we are redoing the site to modernize it a bit, but seem to have a lot more problems working with web designers than we ever had setting up boats to run offshore.

We know it's a pain but what we still haven't put up to be seen is going to be awesome.

Plan on doing some prints of the original George Bartell paintings as seen in SEARACE.

Next Monday we are shipping out a boatload of stuff for our new HORBA museum in Florida. Since we can't afford to do one on our own, it will be housed in a new restaurant in Fort Myers on the water.

The display will have trophies from American, European and South American races from the 60's, 70's and 80's. Individual brass keepsakes from races like the Bahamas 500 from 1968 to the Around Long Island Marathon in 1966.

Also original Ron Thibedeaux photos and original George Bartell paintings. The displays will be changed every 6 months. The restaurant owners want to become a destination for high performance boaters on the west coast and are working with us to understand what they need to do.

I will try to post some more timely updates as we move through this thing.

Thanks for your patience and support for the history of the sport.

Bud, the restaurant is at the Marina at Edison Ford and is called Pinchers. They have a few more throughout Florida.

They are in the process of designing displays for the stuff I gave them. I would think it all can be seen by the first of May. As soon as I get a definite date from them I will post.

Nice to see you are keeping the history alive Charlie. Thank you as that is the part of offshore I really enjoy still.

How is the Cigarette restoration coming along these days.?
