Default Horba

I am posting this on a public forum because I can no longer get a response from p/m's and email.
I have been pursuing this for years now and am only going to ask one more time and I'm done. If it cant happen then so be it, just say so (and I don't even care why) and I will walk away with no hard feelings. You are the Historic Offshore Race Boat Association. This boat was built in 1967 by one of your prominent members and raced against some of the biggest names in the business. I have film of it in the Bahamas 500 from back in the day and the ACBS just graced me with 3 awards for it 8 weeks ago. One way or another it's time to put this to bed and move on.





Now I have to go finish reinstalling a motor in it after dropping a valve racing around at the show.

No gripe.
For years I’ve been lead to believe (by Horba) that my boat will be on their site just for it to never happen. Like 5 years now. Kind of starting to feel weird about asking anymore.

Sorry Gary but I really don't have much to add except what I saw on Miami Vice. As for movies, the only one with my boat in it they sell the DVD on HORBA.

No answer....hummmmmmmm
Well, there is always Supernova24.com
I also own raceboat.org and raceboat.info. May have to do my own Horba.

I have talked to so many people over there over the years.... I mean it's been posted here for a week now and still nothing. Not even a simple reply.
Like I said I feel like I'm begging at this point and 1, I don't beg and 2, this boat don't need to beg for anything.
To be honest after this last week (and years before it) I no longer even want my boat on their site. I know for a fact that my boat was a done long before Still Crazy (not picking on them just followed the restore and know mine was done before theirs and I had already contacted Horba many times) and others but yet they are on there and the Nova 24 is not. I get it, they don’t want my boat for some reason even though it was built by a guy that is listed 3rd on their board of directors. Just wish they wouldn’t have said they did over and over and over again.
I am done with this. They can lock or delete this thread if they like. As far as I am concerned Horba is a dead site/organization and will be deleted from my favorites.
