Hello dreamer ..... I've read em all several times ..... Definitely The King of Thunder Boat Row for me ...... The other two were very silimar in content, but dealt more with the dark side ..... His life as an offshore performance boat designer, builder & racer are the things of interest to me ................... HotSpare....

Question

Hey, we ought to see if we can get an OSO price for people on this board. See how many people want a copy, talk to Amazon or whoever and say we'll take like 100 copies. Maybe we could get it for like $25.00 each. Anybody know how to go about this??
