Dave Gillmore was one of the funniest people I ever met...and a very knowledgeable and talented professional. He made racing history and helped put us on the map when he talked us into making an inboard race boat out of our previously outboard only Shadow Cat molds. The resulting World Champion "Love It" took off and never looked back...and I am grateful to this day.

Davey...you were a good friend and a positive voice when we needed it most.....

God Speed old friend......... and rave on.

I am so sad to hear that, I worked with Dave at TNT before aquiring OSO. OSO headquarters was in TNT for a long time and Dave and I shared many memories during lunch and after hours. I will miss him dearly.
