Have a steering wheel and shifter with throttle controls that can clamp onto the edge of a coffee table or other types of tables. Maybe we could get sponsorship by Gaffrig or Keikofer, use their controls or a mock up at least with their name on the equipment. Also, put the trim tab on the base unit with the throttles. All the regular buttons can be mounted on the base with the wheel. Start, menu, etc..

I'm working on the tree of options now as we speak. I will do everything possible to make this dream come true. I believe that a high quality game like this could make winters easier to deal with around here. I have a Microsoft Excel file that I'm putting together some options. If anyone wants to look at it or even edit it, e-mail me at: [email protected] I will be happy to send it to you. Then you can add to it and send it back. I will merge the files.

This is what I'm talkin' about.....Real offshore racing!! No Hydro Thunder crap. I have both XBox and PS2 so either will do just fine!!

Need to have Cigarette and (go ahead ....say it......no you say it.......alright.....)APACHE ,And don't forget Active Thunder, Warlock, Kryptonite, and of course Activator. I'm an F-1/F-2 fan.

I am in!!!!! Authentic like the NASCAR or GTA games.... I like the Idea of a fun poker run mode. How about having a couple old school endurance runs using the old teams and boats?

How about a follow up game Offshore2 Where you build up a race team and then start building a few boats of your own becoming the next Don Aronow.....well let's get the first one in production.

Like the idea of limited classes:
F1, F2, V, SuperV, Cat, Supercat, maybe adding an outlaw P class that could include The 160+ V's of Fountain and Outerlimits or turbines.
