Great reading. I like his humble remarks about all the splashes.

It is refreshing to read an article about a major player in the hi-perf boat building business, and learn so many facts. Normally, they have already stuffed it down our throats 3 or 400 times! Peter gets my vote..............

He's always had mine..............

Here is a guy from a humble background, who avoids publicity, makes the absolute best product in the industry, is acknowledged as the teacher for most of today's major hull and laminate schedules, and has never gotten a big head. In addition he is ripped off with awesome regularity and laughs it off. A class act in every way.

Peter you deserve every compliment that you get....and then some.

wow what a great article. just read it on the plane to LOTO


Rich i think one of the biggest reasons Pete laughs it off so easily is because while its true his hulls are splashed more than any other. they will never NEVER be remotely close to the real thing. it was nice to see such a personal article giving us a look at a true legend in the sport. one day i will have to visit the facility, its not to far from me. . . . . . .
