Don Aronow would be 80 today

March 1 would have been the 80th birthday of Don Aronow if he were still alive.

We have put together a special tribute to him in the new Diamond Anchor Member's section. About 150 photos mainly from John Crouse and the Aronow Family Archives.

All new members get a free DVDV copy of the 60's offshore movie Run Sunward that was made about offshore racing and Don as the film crew followed him around the world.

There is a free clip on the site that you can sample.

What new designs would we have been enjoying if he had lived. What other boat companies would he have created that would have been out there today like Formula, Donzi, Magnum, Cigarette?
