Default and...........

It's the first company to have the area code (305) or (909) that I didn't have to dip into my savings and then screw me !

Default AND=====>

It brings a smile and generates some bounce back into these old bones to see such a great group of guys/girls dedicated not only to the sport, but dedicated to fellow members of OSO regardless of age, religion, color or political beliefs.
Oh did I mention the deepening of smiles/laughter lines???
Thanks OSO_Thanks everybody

I might Rip now and then......... but, I am PROUD to be in the company of ALL of YOU! I have learned so much from this Site, I guess we all have growing pains, from both the Presenters' and the Voyeurs' (We know who we are) side, but it should all be positive. I didn't mind paying for my upgrade in the forum back last year because it helped progress on the site, When I met Steve (OSO Board) at the Key West races I realized just how much of a business it had become, and that it couldn't be the same as it had been................ Change such as this should never be construed as greed, but, the solidification of of this knowledge base....... I, for one, will always help with some $$$$'s,now, and then, lets just keep it reasonable. I know there is a 'Demograph' here ,so sell it, everyone, tell everybody , boater or not, about I'm always bragging about this place to people....... OK enough said, Thanks, Billy

I was pretty impressed when I actually won a boat from Active Thunder because of a contest on OSO I have been equally impressed by the caliber of people I have met at the different functions and the amount of knowledge shared here. As for the cash idea-here is how I think it works. There are too many sites out there that give free access, trials, prizes, etc. and then whammy you for some amount of cash. This inherently makes people leery when some website starts asking for cash. If it wasn't internet based and we were asked for 49.95 to get into a party-no drinks, just admission to the room, I suspect that 95% of the people here would pony up in a minute-even for just one night.
Aside from that I think successful people are drawn to successful things and OSO definitely fills the bill.

Thanks Jeffrey and Steve for your continued efforts keeping this place the best on the web.

I was most impressed with the new format a LONG time ago.

The gatherings of OSO people all over the country. ALWAYS great people.
Put your best foot forward!

The best thing about OSO is the new life-long friends I have made. Both locally and nationally (and even a few from outside the USA!!). I can honestly say my life is better due to OSO. I've boated in places I would probably never had considered if it weren't for OSO. LOTO being the first that comes to mind. And I have Wally to thank for that. He talked me into it. Thanks pal.

I LOVE this place.

When I first joined a bout 10 months ago, I didnt really know much about performance boats. I felt kinda dumb hangin around the docks with guys asking me questions about my boat that I didnt have an answer too but thanks to this site I have learned more about boating in 10mos then most people I know learn in a lifetime on the water.
I have also learned alot more about life in general, not to mention saving thousands of dollars, and I have met a ton of great people in the process.
Thanks OSO

Thumbs up

Now where else exactly in the Universe can I go to Talk and Listen regarding all aspects of High Performance Boats and Boating? And still have the added benefit of Playtime with the Politically Challenged? Where ? Only here !!

Thanks OSO and hope for an even more exciting Year!
