I hope someone is going to pick up John Crouse and bring him by to hang with some old friends for a day.

I bet he'll be able to sell a Sea Race book or two.

I believe it was poor yorick himself.(in a moment of self doubt and pity) people were always quoting him, it is what pushed "over the edge"

Please let me in, listen if (El Don) as best known around the shop by the Cuban was alive he would let me in (I promise to go slow for safety)...
This is a great fun idea, you guys are doing a grat job, (Let me in)...

I am trying to arrange "Dog sitters" for John.

He has three great dogs that he babies endlessly.

He doesn't want to leave them and he doesn't want to take them with him....so among the other areas to be covered...I am working on it.

It would be great o hear some of his stories...here he is with the one and only...Carl Kiekhaefer.

John lives on the west coast of Florida. He was THE person that made Don Aronow famous. John was also the offshore editor for Powerboat Mag for 15 or so years. Plus he put on the old Bahamas race as a promoted.

John belongs in Sunny Isles Beach for this event. I'd love to shake his hand, I think I've read everything that his hands have written.

Bill, check your pm.

Come to think of it.. I might need a dog sitter also. Just North of Tampa. May be we get a dog group together to.

Charlie, Larry et al, some of our attendees are arriving in motorhomes. Can they park in the pits?

Hi Rich - That's me, and as for "error in trim", you had to be there to understand. That day was the biggest damn water I ever ran in...AND I finished a very respectable 2nd outboard behind John Stenbeck. Steve Sirois
