Thank you everyone for the kind words. It was a weekend I will not soon forget. I'm back on Marco recovering from a crazy few days.
It was a chance for me not only to take delivery of an awesome new boat but to also have 14 friends share in the fun. I expect it will be the only time I will ever enter 2 boats in a poker run and wanted to get some aerial pics of the 2 boats running together before "old" Predator goes to a new home at the end of this month. That is a whole other interesting story that I cannot talk about yet but watch for some more bizarre stuff to happen at month end and even more crazy stuff come mid May.
Thank you Raymond Roberts from DoubleR Performance for flying back down to FL this weekend to captain "old" PREDATOR and also for brokering the deal for me with Nor Tech on "new" Team PREDATOR.
Now I have to say thank you to Trond, Nils, Terry, John(s), Roy, Cindy and all of the hard working people at Nor Tech for putting out such a great product. This is my 3rd Nor Tech and the quality of build is the best yet. Between the poker run Saturday and running around today I already have 10 hrs on it. Raymond and I have gone over the boat and the number of things that need to be fixed or attended to can be counted on one hand. I am very, very pleased with every aspect of the boat from start to finish, and am also impressed with the performance of the diesels. Wish I had gone that route years ago now. I look forward to many years of trouble free performance boating.
Thank you everyone involved.
