(sung to the tune of the Brady Bunch)

Here is a story of a business lady,
Who had a lot of money and a big loud boat,
Big and blown and bad, with triple Eikerts,
And 6's with no skeg in the middle...

This is the story of an engine builder,
Who was busy down in South Florida,
He was fairly successful, building motors,
and other parts and such...

Then one day this lady met this fellow,
And they formed a golden partnership,
A blurb in Powerboat, and lots of big plans,
Then the facade began to slip...

Rumors began of money trouble,
And whispers of big spending sprees,
with bills unpaid and lawsuits flying,
and posts galore on OSO....

Now KEPP has no Keith Eickert,
and its motors are built by Sterling Marine,
Lots of folks want to know the story,
But the truth remains unseen....

The Eickert story, The Eickert story,
That's the ballad of the Eickert story....
Thank you, thank you. You're too kind... thank you. Please remember your servers, they're working hard for you... thank you....

butterscott do you have a performance boat? Just kidding. Keith is one of the most well respected high performance engine builders in the country. Grab Powerboat magazine from like February or March and read all about it.

Dockrocker...LMAO! Well done!



Lucy...as always. You look beautiful!

It could be worse. The worse thing on a construction site is when one person starts whistling the tune to the old Andy Griffith Show!!!!!!!!! Soon everyone is in on it all day long.

keith eickert lost his engine building company for a lick , a promise and a rolex watch. julie sulivan can't get any of keith eickert';s former engine tech's to work for her. they can't work for rubber paychecks. vendors won't ship parts. too many broken promises.

that is why ms julie has shnookered mike d'annabel. she took a thriving , self sustaining , buisness . and ran it into the ground.

can you say ..."snake oil saleslady".......I CAN !
