As the owner of a boat with an "old", 2-cycle, Detroit who
was worried about the company prior to Penske's purchase, I
have to say that this is really good news for OMC.  Penske
is one of the best CEOs in the field and a terrific leader.

OMC should really go somewhere with Roger P. at the helm.

BTW - the old Detroit was the most reliable engine I've
ever had the pleasure of working on. ;-)
