made it easy for buyers and sellers of boats to connect with each other.
Max's innovative use of computers expanded beyond boats to other industries in the pre-Internet days. Max helped match buyers with sellers in seven additional categories: airplanes, exotic automobiles, sport and luxury cars; thoroughbred horses, fine art, business opportunities and high-end real estate. Two US Presidents congratulated Max for his efforts helping people meet the right people.
