Anyone remember the old rec.boats.racing.power newsgroup? All I remember over there was tunnel boat guys trashing the offshore guys and Benny Robertsons first disqualification racing for Reggie. They couldn't understand why they couldn't cheat and get away with it.

Wasn't that before this board or at the same time. Maybe that newsgroup still exsists. I remembered my number. I guess I missed being an original member by 2 months.

Just checked and it's still there. Different players but still alot of crybabies.

I have been around for a couple of years - not much at typing, so i do not reply that often.

I am amazed at the information that can be garnered at this site! With some of the recent posts to Jennifer's and Jo & Dre's situation, I am truly amazed as to the amount of empathy, consideration, intelligence and friendship, shown on this board.

You have managed to attract a very diverse, knowledgeable and fun crew here on the board. Accolades to all for a job well done!

Paul

I looked in on the old board time to time.
Total BS fest.
Was or still am #108 when it was still shown.
Remember the time when you where able to give another member star ratings?

Been around long enough to remember hyperbaja sell a "rolex"
Cuda challenged anyone to a showdown not long ago..no offense meant cuda
There was a parts dealer with many problems and bad bad bad behavior
Have also seen a manufacturer almost completely fall from grace but kick and scratch his way back into the good graces of the community
I kinda like the poodle thing when it started...seemed Nort had a thing for poodles so he masked it by calling everyone a poodle
The board is a great resource for me and my boat when I think of diffent mods to do to my boat, glen george has boat similar to mine and put a shorty and big tabs on it..now I have a goal for mine..pics looked awesome too
I was thinking about when I found oso and it was in 2001 in my old office..lurked for a long time reading threads thinking these west coast boaters are nuts but seem to have a good time ripping on each other..I guess I remember where I was when I found oso
