easily passing 200+mph in an offshore would never have been possible without him - Classy gentleman.

RIP Mr. Arneson...Traditionally it would be customary to say "G_d's Speed!" but I/m sure he's up there to give the big guy a he** of a race in his hands now!

Super cool guy, met him in the late 70s; did some business and of course boating with him over the years.
He is the reason I got into offshore boating.
RIP Howard

Hard to process even though I’ve never met him. Loved reading the stories about him. Remember one relatively recently (10 ish years ago) about him taking his Aston Martin to the drag strip.

RIP. Hope to meet you on the other side.
