Nice site, I always enjoy reading about and researching early offshore racing. As you get this developed maybe you could find some copies of Blue Thunder to offer on your website. I know it is out of print but that book sure puts Cigarette, DA and the early offshore boat scene in focus.

I will keep coming back to your site,
John

Sean,
I for one am glad that you are going to keep it going. The new look is great! Can't wait to see the rest of what you will come up with.

I don't know how far back you are going or if you want to add this type of boat but I have a 1987 31 Cig Decathlon Center Console.

I have a few pictures of others that are out there along with a brochure. They are a part of the history from what I am told because it was the predecessor to the 31 bullet.

Cordell,

That is a good point...I will include the Decathalon...

BROWNIE designed that boat based on the Bullet hull. I've always liked it. I wonder how many were built because you certainly don't see them that often...

Sean,
From what I've been told the Decathlon came before the Bullet and there were only between 20 and 30 of them made.

Also the spelling for it is Decathlon not Decathalon. Got to leave out the "a". I spelled it wrong for a long time.

Thanks for thinking about including it in the history. When I first bought the boat I inquired about it and BROWNIE told me a little about it and then Scott V. Smith gave me a little more.

Thanks,
Cordell

The site looks great. The first time I did it, it took me to the old page. And what was up with all the pop-ups? Just curious.

Battle Cry,

No pop ups on ThunderboatAlley.com The old message board was free and there is still a link to it on the old home page, and I believe it has pop-ups, but the site itself is pop-up free.


BTW, the message board is going away because it is largely unused and hey...OSO is the best message board on the internet today!

Check to see if gator has somehow made it's way on to your computer...and remove it as it is spyware which sends pop up ads to your computer no matter what sites you visit.
