Oh yeah, it was on there I heard about this place. I was Ted G. on there and one day somebody was saying in the middle of a flame thread he had been spending time over at Offshoreonly.com . I came over, signed up on a whim using my first e-mail handle, and hear I am

Harry is still around. I venture over to the newsgroups on occasion when I want a good laugh. He hasn't changed a bit. Still more worried about politics than boating.

Is it still around?
It is still there but I have not been on it in years.

Back then I was Scarab Mike, Miklos was Laser, Gordo was H82LUZ, Bob Bull, Alweiss and a few other were there under there own name.

We all use to really mix it up! All the F1 and F2 racers were there and it got so out of hand it was comical and better than prime time TV! I remember Mercury Lake X held a F1 and 2 round table to clear the air.

That was when I 1st met a lot of the guys. I met Miklos 1st found out he lived 15 minutes from me and that is when I got all involved in offshore racing.

Those names are coming back. Forgot Llama Feeder.


Here it is some 8 yrs later and I still have no idea what the hell the Llama races were. Figured some secret code, kind like the early secret OSO code 'tug-tug'.

I haven't been back there since I joined here.

You talking about Jeff Cheng? He is the original builder/owner of this site from the beginning. Steve has to be credited with making it what it is today though.
