    The Ole' monday damage report

    I had a wedding Saturday and lousy weather Sunday but saw a friend of mine Sunday afternoon who was out just long enough to pop one of his 468's. Started running bad ...stopped and found an oil slick behind him...checked oil...looked like a milkshake. Seems to be just a headgasket Well he was coming out this weekend anyway.
    You can never have too much horsepower or money...It's just hard to have both.

    Another successful weekend with -ZERO- problems or failures.

    (Didn't use the boat.)
    Retired! Boating full-time now.

    Havent pulled it a part yet but I had several hours of towing it home to ponder my lack of forward propultion
    Im pretty sure its a drive shaft
    Thanks to OTTIS311 we were still able to maintain a 40+ mph cruise with out a drive
