I thought the same thing!

Not only a big building, but a NEW building!

I guess the Discovery Channel pays well!

I'm pretty sure they run the rest of the business in there also. They still make fenders and tanks for OCC and the other chopper companies.

A lot of the fenders and tanks that OCC uses were fabricated at their shop.


I liked the show. I think they do more complicated fabricating then OCC does but OCC comes up with more creative Ideas.


Both good shows. I hope they keep them both on.

That would be cool. Probably a bit more expensive to make.

Rumer has it that they are talking to a family owned offshore performance boat builder in Florida now about this.

I got the information second handed, so I will not say anymore. The guy that told me is an OSO regular, maybe he will give some more details!

Lets hope it happens!

Cool idea....I bet they'll have to come up with another name besides American Offshore......they'll be trying to get some money off that deal.

Hey they have a show for cars, bikes, etc etc.....BRING ON THE BOATS!!

The first episode has been filmed, it's being edited.
I can say no more. If I did, I would have to kill you.
