    Congrats To SBO

    Great story. People who do business with a handshake are rare. People who business with a verbal handshake are exceptional people. That is why I have been in the SBO family for what seems like decades. Rare and exceptional is what makes SBO work.

    I have always had the desire to name my boat Dog House. I know it can't be original, but I have always enjoyed calling her that. The next one was Nachos, as in nachos boat.
