Default there is a hero among us...

The shirt off his back is in effect what TOO OLD did for me, i bought a K.E. bellhouse from him and was unable to lacate another. so fred at trick marine (aka TOO OLD) called his mechanic and had him take a bellhousing of one of his own blower motors to help out a customer in need. ME... i offered to pay him ana extra hundred bucks for doing it and he refused to take the addl cash i offered. what a stand up guy. he has earned a loyal customer for his heroic act. i was shocked and awed by him doing this for me. Thanks so much fred, your kindness will not soon be forgotten. i hope sharing this with the rest of you folks on oso will encourage you to give fred a chance to earn your bussiness as he did mine. ratman

Fred goes out of his way for everyone that has a boat in need

He gets all the business from everyone I know, and it is all well deserved for one of the nicest guys you will ever meet....Now if we could just get his boat in the water

You just have to understand...Fred doesn't need the bellhousing for the boat to sit on the trailer in the garage!!!

Just kidding, Fred is just an all-around good guy and a huge asset to our "Hobby".

Be serious. He's thanking you. You just gave him another reason not to use his boat.

Sorry Fred, couldn't help myself.

As I've stated before, Fred has and continues to raise the bar for customer service.
No matter what it is I might need, now or in the future, he is THE FIRST person I will always contact. He has helped me out much farther than anyone else would have. I hope someday to be able to return the kindness.

Fred Ceceil Rocks. Plain and Simple...He just plain rocks....
