I am so impressed with the response to this thread. The good guys are long overdue to get the recognition they deserve. OSO is the best thing to come around since Troutly's popcorn. You guys make me proud to be part of the OSO family.

Wow Ed, Thanks, I am honored to be part of this thread. People like you, ED, have been a constant source of inspiration for me since I became involved with this industry.
One of the reasons I enjoy doing business with the OSO business owners is because they are all the best in my opinion.
Tres continues to excell with his high performance boat operation school, Throttle up is always ready and able with advise and product, Top Knot is top notch, I could just go on and on....
Thanks to Jeffery and Steve, we all have a great source of knowledge, products, and, yes, gossip (but we love it..).

Tommy from CHIEF ENGINES is my all time high.

Doller is the only place I take my boat for anything with my eyes closed, Mac, Mindy, Dana, Wayner and the rest of the bunch are a class act operation.

Throttle-Up, is family in my book.

Trick Marine, Fred Cecil, Fred claims that I was his first customer last year and I am honerd to have met him, a true American.

Pantera is my family away from home top notch.

Johny at TNT is as smooth and friendly as they come super operation.

Charlie Amman at White Oak Marine has been more than helpfull to me this year.

Mesa Balancing thank you for all your help throughout my year in racing.

But Trout didn't use the new "C" verb....

People who have saved my butt and not charged me a dime:

Iggy
Liberator21

Businesses who have saved my butt:
Dubberts outdrive in Port Clinton Ohio. I bent a shift shaft in my Alpha drive on my old 21 Nova three days before I was supposed to show/sell the boat. They repaired, assembled, and filled my drive in less than one day (in JUNE) for less than a hundred bucks and the sale went on as schedule. The drive worked like new.

Thanks Ed. It was because i was honest I got canned from Brand X. They didnt want to hear any negative problems, just Roses and Champaigne.
Where do we meet so can give you your bribe $$$, how much was it again?
Thanks Ed.

Chris Martin at Stern Drive Specialists. He's always willing to answer questions, and has always been able to fix whatever I've managed to break on my boat.
