Default THE CHIEF

Got to spend the day with the chief and crew yesterday, it's great have these guys only a couple of hours away from my house. Thanks for a great day. Steve

I want to personally thank you and Dave P for taking the time to sit down and listen to what we had to say. It was a great day and Typhoon has a first class operation. Check out their website www.typhoonperformancemarine.com for all of your boating needs.

Again Dave and Rich thank you so much.

Sean
It was a pleasure to host Mr. Stinson, Mr. Grady and the one and only Chief who as always was a wealth of information and stories

The Chief and T2x sitting at the same table swapping stories.........it doesn't get any better than that. Maybe someone should catch it on video hummmmm....... stay tuned

Default Thank You

Dave P

It was very nice of you to take time out and show us your facility, Typhoon Performance Marine. It’s a first class Hi Performance operation. Also I was very impressed with the powerboat racing memorabilia in your office, brought back many fine memories.

Thank you for your hospitality, it was much appreciated. Please keep me informed on the Arneson conversion project you are working on. I'm interested on how she will turn out.

Mr. Rich Luhrs

All I can say is to have lunch with the Honorable T2X was the highlight of the trip.

Looking forward to seeing you all soon

I enjoyed having dinner with you in Crown Point Indiana, it was very interesting conversation. Don’t forget to tell Fred “Too Old” about the ketchup stains on his steering wheel.

Do you really think this would be faster with steps.....?

Remember it took the Miss Budweiser..........and almost 50 years................... to raise the propeller driven speed record....10%.

Yesterdays technology...in many ways was ahead of today's.
