Didn't this thread exist in another form already?

Is Mr. Gilbreath still associated with Gil Marine? Isn't Gil headquartered in Ohio now (maybe it's not the same one)?

Are you, Philip, Kim and Darren going to make it into the city for sushi in '03?

I had lost interest in the previous post early on and never went back to check it. So, I'm glad this one is up now.

Back to the original questions:

-Is Gilbreath still associated with Gil Marine
-Is the Gil Marine mentioned in the article the same Gil Marine that is now headquartered in Ohio?

-Lastly, you ever getting out of the woods of NJ and into the city?

Great pictures by the way.

Thanks.

I'm not familiar...... can someone give us his history, or where can I find it? The other thread was a bunch of gibberish about him wrecking stuff. I don't wanna only hear that. What are his accomplishments?

JG is definitely one of the best set up guy's! He does however seem to crash alot. I just spent over an hour speaking with George Linder. Rich even though we disagree with some things I owe you an apology to question your afilliation with boat designing , building and racing. George set the record straight , what a great guy to talk about boats with! BH

Brian:

I always believed it takes more courage to admit an error than to fight a battle....apology accepted.

Perhaps, I can persuade you to investigate a few more things and find additional common ground.

T2x...........

P.S. .......George is my best friend.....and has been since 1965..... He is a truly gifted individual....and a lot more diplomatic than I am....We are kind of Yin and Yang in that regard..... I'm the torque wrench....he's the micrometer.
