Joe's a good guy, and so Is Scott, not to mention what an incredible boat!


Hey Jason, long time no see, how the hell are you?
A better approach especially to another Nortech guy could have been handled better, BUT to be totally blown off before I could even mention my name with my hand extended out, tells me other wise. This happened when GATORONE was leaving and the tone of the moment changed. Big rush like it was a race to get out or leave. All that mattered at that moment was...where's the frickin alcohol...and off they sped. I call it like it is..like it or not. Joe and his team might be great guys, but I didnt get the opportunity to see that. Jeff

Seemed to be pretty down to earth guys if you ask me.
I thought about asking them if they had any t shirts left but I always feel kind of strange about asking people for things.
Since it sounds like they have some, I would be more than happy to buy a couple.

It was nice talking with you guys. We have a ton more shirts. PM me with you address and we'll get some out to ya.

Hey man sorry if we made you feel like we blew you off, we would never of done that intentionally. We had a few problems and changed our setup for sunday and were pretty busy with the boat. We were in a rush to get out because they had us running in a specific order. And the alcohol was definately for the engines. Joe doesnt drink and I wont have a drop till the boating is over for the day.

Just to put in my 10 cents worth - Joe and family are real nice people and are welcome at any PRA event. Joe has be very helpful to me over the years and as far as PRA is concerned, we have never had a problem.
Maybe some of you guys should look in a mirror.
