For anyone who does not have a copy of John Crouse's book SEARACE....the complete history of offshore racing......now is the time.

John has new copies in storage and is taking them out for the holiday season...if you want one get it now!!!

Click onto the HORBA website www.historicraceboats.com

Then click on the links section.....scroll down to the link for John Crouse and SEARACE and you can order directly from him.

MERRY CHRISTMAS

I bought one from John @ the Miami show when he first published it. Had him sign it. It is a cherished reference that I have read cover to cover more than once.

The book is so big and full of info and photos it is hard to believe someone actually took the time to keep those kind of records.....but John was there as it all happened.

I just sent an e-mail to them to update their website/order form as it will not allow you to input the proper credit card expiry date. Hopefully this will get rectified shortly.
How is the video??

Write to John directly at [email protected] him you tried to get an order through his link at HORBA and couldn't.......he might even autograph it for you if you mention HORBA.

You can see the video on the HORBA website in themembers only section.

I e-mailed him the other day asking what the price was and he responded and even called me right after he sent it. I can't remember for sure but I thinking it's around $49 and maybe $6 for s&h but don't hold me to that. Thinking about trying to have someone buy it for me for Christmas.

Unfortunately my e-mail got bounced back --- I'm not sure why--- I will try to call or e-mail from another account.

Here is a reply I received yesterday from him asking about placing an order.

You can order the book direct from me at [email protected] at $49.95 plus $6 handling and postage. E-mail me your mailing address, a phone number and a Visa, Master or even Amex card numbers. We prefer the first two! Each book comes signed and personalized.

Thanks,

John Crouse
CROUSE PUBLICATIONS

He seems to be a nice guy since he has responded to both of my e-mails in a short period of time. I'll probable place and order later this morning.
