Default Who is OSO "Wise Old Oak"?

In the past few years of viewing this site, I have recieved quit a history lesson. From Racers that owned dogs with Gold Teeth to Everything you ever wanted to speculate about Apache...But where afraid to ask. From what I have read T2X and Brownie (Both whom we hardly hear from) Seem to be our boards "Wise Old Oaks" Those we hear about The Good Old Days from. Are there any others on the board. Anyone who could right a book based upon what they know about our sport. A book worthy of turning off Springer for ten minutes to read. I dont know about the rest of you, but this sport has a history that beats any campfire story I have heard. So who are our story tellers? Who would you love to sit down at dinner with and just listen? And while I am on the subject, Thank you to Brownie and T2X for the stories. I am stell waiting on the joint effort book that would be a disservice to an entire sport if it was not written (Hint Hint)

In addition to the above, though certainly not old, add Ryan Beckley to the list...There's very little he can't tell you about boat racing history.

Although contraversial, how about John Crouse, the author of SEARACE?

Always did like Uncle Toys posts, except the one on CAT, that's a whole thread in itself.

Don't know him but he has something interesting to say.

RonP knows his way around racing as well. I should have mentioned Ryan Beckley...he sure does know an aweful lot about offshores history.

John Crouse certainly knows his stuff. No question. Well, I better just leave it at that.
