Default OSO in the News

I've been assigned to write an article about OSO for the upcoming edition of Extreme Boats Mag. This issue will feature the World Championship races and OSO, along with Steve's girlfriend, Samantha as our featured Extreme bikini model.

I'd like to ask for your help with the article.

Please list your top three most notable members of OSO. You pick the reason why they are notable in your mind but please explain why they made the list.

Second, list your most memorable thread of all time. Or why you visit OSO.

Thanks for your help. I want to make this a great story.

#2 Too Old, very professional with every post he has ever made.So what if he has never driven a boat on water.

#3 Bob Saccenti, a true hero and legend in the sport of offshore powerboat racing.

Best thread of all time........Apache whats in a name 1,2

For me one has to earn respect by their knowledge and what they give to the board.

1) Would easily be Too Old. Professional, curtious, helpful, has the ability to say what needs to be said without offending. ALWAYS there to help without complaint.

The rest are honorable mentions in no certain order:

T2X
Sean Stinson
Shane
Sharkey

And a couple others I'm sure I'm forgetting. These people have more combined knowledge about performance boating history than the entire membership of every other boating forum I have ever been on.

I would have to say BG1. He is in fact the Founder of OSO.

My choices:

1) Too Old - Fred has great insight into our sport, is ALWAYS willing to help out whatever/whenever and has vowed to someday get one of his boats out on the water. (Vegas is giving 5 to 1 AGAINST)

2) Troutly - Not afraid to offer an opinion and says something while offering it. (The "librarian" of the uncensored section)

3) Board God 1 - for putting this all together


I think we all realize how important this website has become to us all.

I have to agree with Outlaw.

1-Too Old always has something to offer.

2-Troutly is definitely the "Librarian" of the uncensored section. Hey Troutly, did you like the Calendar!

3-Jeffery because he's the Brilliant man behind this Phenomenon.

4-Phantom Chaos for making me cry for laughing soo hard. I have a flat stomach because of the work out! Woo hoo!
