Mel Riggs is one of the best guys I've ever done business with, not just in boating but in any business. Knowledable, helpful, and straightforward. He is a class act and in a class by himself. What a great partnership!

HORBA is doing a special for the attendees. We are bringing some of the remaining copies of John Crouse's SEARACE book to the dealership.

Here is your chance to get this never to be repeated book on offshore racing and a chance to get Mel to autograph his many photos in the book to you personally.

It would be nice for Him to give me HIS autograph for a change. LOL

Can't wait to get up there and slip into one of those banana boats. Nobody drives them quite like Magnum Mark...

The abundance of used equipment is just unbelievable. They have a warehouse full of Mercury "take offs" that just seems like it'll never end. Bellhousings, motorplates, alternators, coolers, brackets of any kind that you may need to do some of that "custom" kinda fabrication that's involved with some of the engine swap combos that we like to get ourselves involved into. The list goes on & on, and I can't even begin to describe what they've got in store, but what I can tell you guys, is that if there's "ANYTHING" and I mean anything, that you might possibly need for your boat, these guy can fill your needs.

This next weekend is their open house, and it's one that everyone should try to attend. Come and view the operation and see for yourself what I'm talkin about. It'll be a weekend well worth the trip.

Congrats again, and see you guys soon.
Very well put Frank. Looking forward to the weekend.
