Don't know the Sunkin story. Have seen thread, but looks too long. Did he start Serious offshore? What's the short version? And what's up with Chief?

What molds are you talking about? From what I understand, somebody named Adam (who is somehow tied to Sunkin) is using Bobby's name against his wishes under "Saccenti Marine" in Ohio........? Why would someone start a business using someone else's last name?

Hello All

I am still very involved with the Chief Powerboat project.. I have all the molds ready to go. Just pick your colors and power.. Hopefully the economy will turnaround and boating as we all know it will start to come back. In the meantime I been keeping busy (so I don’t forget how to put theses dame things together) for a few old Apache clients, mainly total restoration projects. I enjoy a good challenging project from start to finish.

I see a OSO poster mentioned that somebody was using my name “without my permission”. I will assure you that will never ever happen.. Yes I was involved with a business venture that did not get very far, due to me being geographically in the wrong location.. The company has since been resolved and Adam who is a fried and one talented individual has moved onto his own venture.

I am always available for any questions;
