Want to buy an Oce plotter??

Randy, good luck with the new venture. Opportunity doesn't often knock twice. Sounds like you're doing so well, that you'll be able to get more boat than you ever thought you would sometime in the not so distant future.

BTW, I'm definately keeping my 28 for at least this season.

Hey Griff! I figured you probably were. You know you're gonna be buried in that thing!

I just had to do it. It looks like the future will be quite bright. I was thinking that if I played everything right, I might be able to put a down payment on a Y2K30 in the fall. I better not get ahead of myself though!

I think any Oce is out of my price range, even a used one. I'm actually in the market for a new HP 800. Unless of course the Oce is at stupid pricing!

Randy good luck, we might not be in this year . We are having basicly a new hull made from the old, we were right about the stringers , and bulkheads. Still plannig on LOTO tho even if I have to bring a back up to tool around on.

Hey Brian! I figured that would need to be addressed sooner or later. Still, that thing has some amazing speed! I never did get to go for a spin. You guys are going to have to make that happen for me this year if you git-r-done. I hope you're able to get it goin.
