It makes me sad to see the "Genericanization" going on there........
farewell to not only the greatest concentration of powerboat manufacturers, but also to a very large part of boat racing history, .
I am thankfull that I was fortunate enough to experience NE 188 ST from the early days.

Took my buddy Joey Turek (from Chicago, of Crazy Rythm), down memory lane this past tuesday.
We stopped in at TNT, Magnum, Pantera, Martin and Doller, among others.
Was told TNT will be moving in the next couple of months.
At the Magnum plant, we saw the new 60', which will be at the MIA boat show, and the new 80', yes 80'!
This thing is UNREAL........base price $4.5MM, the one we saw was sold, already!
A big thanks to Jo Nunez, for helping me get into my truck, after I locked it with the keys in the ignition! Didn't have to break anything!

I went for a ride with Johnny(TNT) in November, and he was looking for property. I haven't heard since? We were in FREEDOM(46 Skater) and Johnny is smooth as silk on the throttles!
