Thumbs down Maybe just rename this section?

Instead of General Discussion , Change it to Matt Trulio articles.

If the OSO community want us to stop sharing our content on this page, we will. The referral traffic we get from it is negligible. Jason Johnson and I think of it as a courtesy.

But if the community wants us gone, we're gone. You guys decide and we'll respect your decision without any animosity.
Matt & Jason, there is nothing to decide. The OSO community wants you guys here.

The SOTW postings are ALWAYS welcome on OSO. It is always great to see what is going on the boating world and marine industry.
I also like the fact that you post the article links here. It saves me from having to swap between different social media platforms and sites.

I guess ICD should learn he can read what he wants and skip what he doesn't want to read.

I disagree, look at the dates on the original postings and you will notice 2014, 2018........people are bringing Matt's posts back to the top.

Matt is bringing content to a place that badly needs it. I don't care about racing but plenty of people here do so Matt did a story on that recently. TNT is redoing an Apache and a 50 Cig, that is cool and I was glad to see the pics/read the story. Do you think Johnny T is going to log on to talk about a couple boat redos? New builds are nice to see, especially if it is a new model or if an existing member gets a new ride. The WMF Cig story was great though I don't believe for a second that WMF will not improve that 42X sooner or later.

Researched content from someone using complete sentences is good.

Just like anything else if you don't like it don't look! Speed on the Water brings a lot to the table, from the industry side that you may never hear about.

The first owner left it stored on a lift next to a busy overpass (US1 Boca Raton) and I thought for sure it was going to get sun beaten/worn. Glad that first owner sold it to the guy before WMF!

Phil still has it on his website as the opening background, yeah its good looking for sure.

98% of mine have no replies, and I like Matt put up new material everyday. If you don't like it its very simple don't look, there are plenty of threads that I don't read, and Ive been on this page from the very start.

I look at all Speed on the Water, if it is something I am not interested in I simply hit the back button, no problem and takes little time. SOTW delivers a lot of info. As far as Pete's photo...I look at all of them, specially on Tuesday. LOL
