PC & Troutly,



If anyone wants a history lesson I would suggest the book on tape Blue Thunder How the Mafia owned and finally murdered Cigarette boat king Don Aronow by Thomas Burdick. There are quite a few names mentioned in this book that seem to be coming up quite frequently on the board lately. I found a copy at the local library. Unbelievable!

most of what burdick said in bluethunder has been proven to be untrue, read speed kills probably much more accurate.

yes, as reggie has claimed many times, when he was 3 years old he was don aronows mentor and designed the 41 apache

Even at three he was impressive!

I guess I need to go back to the library.

Thanks,

You fountain guys are all the same

Reggie isn't qualified to build the cup holders in an Aronow designed boat.

Does anybody know where I can get a copy of the book "Speed Kills"? I checked a few of the online stores (Amazon etc..) and they all say that it is no longer available.

Reading all the books will give you the best ability to decide for yourself which is the most accurate.
