There wasn't much I could do to help with the prop change, so, since I was there I figured I might as well shoot the sunset...
Nor-Tech flew in a couple of spare props- they got there so quick I couldn't believe it.
Here, Terry and Kevin are eyeballing the replacement prop and the broken one--
trying to determine why it wouldn't go on the shaft in a timely manner.
Terry worked his azz off trying to get that thing on, but it would not go.
Eventually, the decision was made to use the Mercury prop that Bob had.
jayboat...keep the pictures coming....these are great shots and really help tell more of the adventures...great work
To only think, I missed your departure by just several days, we were in KW partying and left June 3rd. I would have loved to send you off at 7am with beer in hand toasting your great success!!! Congrats again!
Bob, when you come to Chicago, the crew at the Chicago Poker Run/ Chicago Powerboat Club would love to welcome you and the crew.
Pass my congratulations on to Bob and the Crew. Always wonderful photos... Congratulations on documenting such an achievement !!
Jay, your pictures as always are amazing. I knew no one could capture our experience like you !! Can you meet us in Cancun tomorrow for Sunday's return leg ? ...... just kidding. It's a thought tho ! I know you will be with us in spirit and so glad you could spend a couple of days with us.
It's late again and just before I turn the lights out, I want to thank all of my OSO friends for the kind words and encouragement. As much as possible it has always been my policy to acknowledge every post that I see that is directed to me but this is so overwhelming I am not able to do that. Be assured tho, I have read and enjoyed every post.
One more thing. Just a reminder that this event has been dedicated to a young girl that lost her family. We at OSO and our Ft Myers Offshore group are helping to put Jennifer Molter thu college. If you are interested and able to make a donation in any amount to "The Jennifur Molter Trust" as many already have, it will be greatly appreciated. See details in post number 1 of this thread.
