He'd just use it as a place to chat with his old bud's, like brownie and top banana, and some of his old customers, like MM and LS.

And maybe he'd tantalize us w/ his facinating stories.

Rob,

Some tried and just gave up.

I speak to people every week that have been lurkers from damn near day one.

Mr Aronow was a good man. I met him when I was eight years old. My father purchased the first 20' he made so we came down from NJ to the factory to pick-up the boat (the whole family went to the factory - me, Mom, Dad, and my brother, and even though my father purchased the smallest boat he offered he treated us great. He let me (encouraged me) rummage through his desk for Cigarette stickers and other swag (shirts, license plate holders...), which as an eight year old I thought was the coolest. Byng Goode took me and my father for a ride in 28' with 350's and VolvoSpeedmaster outdrives - we got in a race, and he won, which again I thought was cool -that was the clincher for me, Cigarette and Aronow were my favorite.

Would he be a member here? - I would hope so, the stories he could tell about racing and boat-building. Those stories would be worth more than the membership fee OSO charges. Ever since age eight I have been a Cigarette fan - thanks to Don Aronow, I don't think he would post though.
