18 hours a day? Who's flippin' burgers? Can we also assume that you won't be splashing the Sutphen this year afterall????

Will you be stocking Marine Machine at any point?

Can you PM me a price for replacement hydraulic hoses for an IMCO full-hydraulic steering system? The external hoses are showing some wear and I don't care for that at all am thinking of replacing the hoses. I may also replace the hose connections. But, since I'm doing my in-processing for Baghdad this week and getting all my shots, I may not have time to do anything with the baot this year.

Thanks Fred. Good luck to your new venture. I'm sure it will be successful.


P.S. You actually SHOULD splash the Sutphen and fill it with Trick Marine parts and write off the expenses of operating it as 'marketing expenses'. So, every time you go boating, you will be 'working'!

Maybe this will teach some of these other marine business how the treat people.

Hopefully Fred will put the hurt on some of them !!!!

I spoke with Fred for the first time yesterday. Gave him my first order which I'm sure won't be the last. Nice guy, friendly service and fantastic prices equals a successful business. Way to go Too Old! I'll pass the word.

BTW, any chance of getting a good price on a set of Merc 525's.
