Keith... Good luck in whatever endeavor you are going into... I, as well as many on this board, know you will overcome this setback and prevail. The people who know you and your products will find out whatever you are doing, wherever that may be, and follow.

I only wish that I could have a piece of machinery worth bearing parts with your backing. I will someday..

To all.......

Keith Eickert is, and has been, one of the top four cycle minds in racing. His history reads like a road map for marine power excellence.....and he has very few peers. I have known him for many years and he has been above all things, a gentleman. He speaks softly and carrys a big motor......

His products have made racing history, set records, advanced the bar, and performed as advertised. That's saying an awful lot in a world where many "motor producers" do little more than bolt on shiny parts and superchargers.

I can sum him up best by the experience of a miss guided missile I know who insists on picking the brains of the motor guys at Sterling, Mercruiser, and KE. This yahoo buys the exact parts used in these world class engines and has them assembled in his own modern shop....... and they blow up...... why? Because if you put a great chef and a short order cook in an identical kitchen.....with identical eggs and ingredients..... one will make a marvelous souffle' ......the other will make a greasy omelette.

Keith is one of the greatest chefs I've ever seen.

Good luck man.

One question...... Why do you wrap hamsters with electrical tape?

I called your shop one time and you answered the phone! I was shocked that a man with such a great reputation took the time to speak with me, the little guy boater! It was such an honor to have such a wealth of knowledge at the other end of the line!
I am sorry to hear that you parted ways with the creation that you spent a life time creating. I hope that the parting was a fair deal and you are satisfied with your share.
But know that the OSO family is widespread and we will make sure the word is passed along to everyone in this country and others. So keep us informed as to your next step and we will be there for your support. We all know that you have the talent to suceed no matter what that future brings.

Good Luck
