Default Brownie's Book

Last year, I put off procastinating until this year. Now it is this year and I am thinking about putting it off again. Anyway, at the rate I am going, I will never finish the book. I have decided instead, to do it in 'dribs and drabs'. I have signed up with Hot Boat Magazine to do a column every month, titled "Tales from Thunderboat Row". I will cover both old time racing and early Hi-perf boatbuilding. You can clip out the columns and paste them together and make your own frickin' book. I have turned in the first story, which will print in the July issue, and it is plenty funny. So there!

Congratulations......... I'll look forward to it with baited breath.

Rich, I must inform you that the proper word is 'bated', which infers anxious waiting. 'Baited' refers to fishing. On second thought........................................... ........

Brownie:

I don't care if you put it on T.P. and send it to Hot Boat. But, we want some pictures too!!!

Seriously, for those of us that missed the birth and growth of offshore racing we are starved for information, stories, facts, probably some fiction (or at least some stretching of the facts), and other flotsam and jetsom.

as my name implies

Charlie at HORBA has MUCH better copies than mine, and he is giving them away with some deal at HORBA.

Look him up.
