Default Book on Thunderboat Row history

I am over halfway through my book, "Tales of Thunderboat Row". I worked on the street for 17 years for some of the bigger players, Donzi, Magnum, Cougar and Cigarette. While I have lots of stories that involved me, I am certain that there must be some great stories that happened while I wasn't there. If you have a good story that should be included, email it to me at "[email protected]" or "[email protected]". In the alternative, call me at 305-332-7611, my cell, or 305-681-7893 x16, my office at Stainless Marine. This may be the last blast on this subject, as I am getting old too....

I've had a double whammy in my life history. Not only did they tear my street down after 41 years, they have sold the Marina where I live, Maule Lake, for the same reason, to build adobes for Yankees! Strangely enough, it has the same dates on the tombstone, 1962-2003.


In any case, if you havee a story, share it.

Can't wait to see the book out. That will definitely be a great read. Always looking for good reading material on the plane to make the flights shorter.
