I found it while searching for a place to sell a boat before there was a board, just the clasifieds. After the boat was gone for several months, I was checking some old bookmarks and founds they added a forum. I've been here ever since.

Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy horsepower. And I've never seen a sad person hauling a$$!

I found it back in the very beginning (member#7) while doing a search for Offshore Performance boat parts.
I quickly spread the word to friends, poker run pals and everyone I knew on the race circut.

Someone mentioned it on I lurked for a long time, then needed to say something (forget what). I don't have time to even approach post bimbo, but if you check the logged on members list at the top, you'll be surprised how often im around. Learning a bit more every day.

I had just taken my first ride on a fast boat and was bugging a friend at work for information (He had a 50' NorTech). Finally he got tired of answering my questions and turned me on to this site.

Since, he has sold his go fast and bought a fatty. Now he doesnt post here anymore. Ode to Warbird, our lost brother!

After my TV career....I had to write somewhere....and so far Powerboat hasn't been smart enough to give me a column........
Figuring, as they do, that you would rather read "Hapless nitwit makes fool of himself at Mercury 300X assembly line"................. then my little gems..........
