I'm with you on this TRES. Chris and I have become BEST friens over the past two years, you won't find more of a stand up guy ANYWHERE! I was in a similar position in my life about 10 years ago where I wasn't sure what I was gonna due with my life, I just hope Chris makes himself happy in whatever he chooses to do. I know he has gained tons of valuble information and knowledge by being around somany knowledgeable people down there. Best of luck CHRIS and you know you are always welcome here too!

Chris will be missed by all that knew him - I cannot think of a guy who was always on his toes like Chris was at the races. He truly knows his stuff, and will be a great racer, as he proved by winning the Cleveland Offshore Grand Prix 2001 in his first ever One Design Race, beating teams that had been racing all year.

Best wishes Chris,

Chris Reindl

TRES: You are correct about Chris
and I hope he finishes his Skater
He came to SoCal to see the Boat
and we had a few hours to Run
Around.
Chris was great to deal with wish
I could say the same about the
Guy who owned the Boat and stiffed me for $2000.00.
Long story but be carefull dealing with a guy Named Richard
Walker in El Monte Calif.
Chris Make sure you send me photos of the finished Boat.

Thumbs up Chris is the man!

I had the pleasure of working with Chris last year and he is one of the hardest working and most accommodating people in the marine industry. Chris I wish you the best of luck and hope to see you again. Iím sure if you stayed longer we could have converted that New Zealand accent to a true southern accent!



.. Tres what is Chrisís user-id on OSO?
