The rumor was Larry was behind the pucchase and refit of MCIV into Samurai

 
Thanks, hadn't heard that.
 
From The Samurai thread in ORA - Jordanian Owner, Kiwi Skipper, also owns Bols Sport.
 
RMB was the author of those comments and he knows what he's talking about.

Even better, I'll go with that as more reliable source and update.

I think the Larry rumor only came about because of the Samurai name. His boats usually have a Japanese themed name, Rising Sun, Katana, etc.

Does he use a mouse instead of a trackball ? anytime I have a mouse at the nav station it flys off at every bounce or heel. Can't tell if that is a trackball

Thanks for the more frequent updates YB.  I realize someone else paid for it, but it does make watching much more interesting.
