    Perhaps I can liven this thread by spilling some dirt on the real Rexone.

    Phoenix, circa 2008, I was walking through the pit area at Firebird with some extraordinarily nice people, including Rexone. We were engaged in a particularly interesting conversation while a couple of guys were struggling to get their boat from a soft surface onto the pavement. Before I noticed, Mike was already leaning into the back of the boat and they were on their way about 15 seconds later.

    Two years later, I was at Katherine's Landing and a huge boat was coming to the pier at a walking speed. The engine went silent and I thought, "These guys are going to hit the dock!" Thinking, "I'm not going to let that showboat Rexone take all the glory." I jumped to the edge of the dock and braced to slow their impact. Oddly, the boat slowed down and turned at the last moment on it's own power. The guys got out of the boat, looking at me like my trunks were falling off while I was boarding a jet boat from the water.

    "What are you doing?"

    "You were coming in pretty fast. When your engine stopped, I figured I would try to keep you from hitting the dock."

    "We have maneuvering thrusters that don't make much noise."

    "Huh!?"

    Rexie is first rate individual and I'm not just saying that because of his free miracle water.

    Hi Bre!


    What I always liked about Rexie is that he was ALWAYS the life of the party at Long Beach !

    Our leader, Barney!

    SO, in the last 20+ years since Havasu Barney days, I had a daughter who’s now starting college (on the dean’s list after completing her first semester).

    My son is doing his masters program at UC Riverside CA. He’s half way done with a three year program.

    I’m still doing IT software work and ready to retire when I get my shop all set up, it’s under construction ( in two years)

    My wife and I are still happily married after 36 years . I’ve been calling Long Beach my second home since the mid 80’s but would like to have a snowbird situation in Parker AZ…

    OH, I got new hips in 2016, it was a pretty dark time in the years leading up to that life changing surgery, I was bone on bone in both hips.

    I’ve had the pleasure of meeting many of the west coast circle boat crew and call many of them friends like Jerry/SharpShooter, Mike/Rexie, Hotboat Vic, LBX David from Long Beach water ski fame and MANY MANY more fine folks that I’ve got to meet/hang with.
