Default Meeting with "The Chief"

I had an interesting sit down last evening with an old and dear friend.... Bobby Saccenti. He and his associates, Sean Stinson and Scott Grady were in town to explain the new Chief Powerboats venture...and they were kind enough to invite me.

It was great to see the "magic throttle arm" again and we shared a bunch of memories. Most importantly, Bobby and I agreed that anything either of us is involved in will have the other's unquestioned support...so consider this my endorsement of the new venture.

Now if they would only lose the steps........

Best wishes to the new Chief Powerboats Team.

Rich,

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
