Default Who remembers this boat from the "Old Days" of OSO?

I was on a covert mission up in north Cape Coral a few weeks ago ... and this boat was sitting on the trailer on the street. I can't remember the guy's name who owned it originally... Was it Joe?

I do... but I think that the name was "Best Revenge". The guy had gotten a divorce and bought the boat!

Pretty sure Audacity was owned by a guy who was on Lake St. Clair in Michigan. He later was involved in racing a catamaran and was a bit controversial. He posted here as Audacity.
Do a search in the Active Thunder threads, it has had a few owners afterwards

"Audacity Joe" was his name. He raced the JBS Donzi Vs and Mystic cat with Jeff S.

He has mildly infamous for the "skeg monster" being responsible for the Donzi spin/roll/flip/sinking

Rick aka rsteiny bought it from Joe and Rick owned it for a long time. I tried to buy it from Rick shortly before I bought my current 32. He didnít want to sell at the time. He sold it a few years later. It was the fastest 32 with HP500s and was on the cover of one of the boating mags

Got it... now I remember... Joe Skroki. The AT, then the Donzi (skeg monster race boat) and then the JBS Mystic debacle. Always drama and some awesome threads, name calling and arguments. Back when we all had fun on OSO... I don't remember because of a great memory, I just used the search function! LOL Anyway, I saw the boat sitting on the trailer in the median of a 2 lane road and stopped to take a picture of it. Still a cool boat!
