Hell, for all we know its a trade off. Powerboat advertises here, OSO advertises in Powerboat. Makes perfect sense to me.

I could give a rats ass where my membership money went. I hope Steve and Jeffrey are stuffing my membership money in a strippers g-string right now!

It's a trade out AD. Everyone does it! Doesn't cost anything.

Besides, it's really not our business if this site is in the black, or in the red. If it's in the black, then it is very much in the minority for an Internet site.

I know I run my business in the black. I have to in order to stay in business. My clients would FREAK if they knew how "we spent their money". I certainly wouldn't even have a boat if I listened or worried about how my customers might think about it.

Now OSO please don't do this but I would say $20 a month would be fare for what info you can get off this site.

Mudone you are a loser big time.

Odds are that of the people that read Powerboat a very high majority of them are members of, or know about OSO. Spending hundreds, or probably thousands of dollars for a full page ad will never pay for itself.

First of all, welcome to the board. I come in peace.

Anyway, I can't count how many times I have been at my local watering hole with a large group from OSO. Grand Lake in Oklahoma, LOTO in Missouri and many more. While there I always mention OSO to other performance boaters. I always ask them if they know of or are members? Do you know what the answer is 99% of the time. "NO, never heard of it. Really? Sounds neat, I'll check it out."

I think you would be surprised at how many people in the sport haven't heard of us. I would be willing to bet that more people don't know about OSO than do.

I can assure you that being a member here has many more advantages than disadvantages. Regardless of whether or not you decide to pay for a membership, you will gain from being here. This group of people will go to bat for you in a heartbeat if you need ANYTHING at all.

The people that have built this have done a wonderful job doing so. I, personally, would gladly spend $100 a year for the privelage of posting here. But I can see the value in it. The owners of this site would go to bat for you in two seconds flat if someone was taking advantage of you here....regardless of how many posts you have or how long you have been here. Paying member or not, your membership here gives you a lot of power in the performance boating community. A lot more than people realize.

I guess that OSO's employees work for free, his (Steve) time isn't important and he doesn't need income either. I guess the hosting company for this site is free also. Wake up you dumb ass.
