Correct me if I'm wrong, but did you buy the boat from a guy that worked at Chicago Yaght yard named Bert?? Back in 01 he was trying to sell me some 4 blade Rolla props, and he said that he previously owned Savage, and that he bought it from Jim Areola, but could not afford to maintain it, so he sold it. Are you the person that bought it from him?? Just curious, cause he had many pics of it on his wall, but I never remember seeing him ever running it, that's all.
Jim, if you have it ready to splash for this summer, you really should bring it to the Chicago Poker run in july, we'd love to see you there with it.
