Sorry I haven't been able to respond earlier. Between trying to catch up with the world, sleep, the board, work, and new board posting problems, it's been an ugly week.

Julie and I got to meet a lot of new faces last week. I wish we could have had more time to talk with everyone, but it seemed like the week flew by.
I do owe some serious thanks to a lot of people...

The guys on the Mercury Marine truck were there with everything from special tools and parts to some great advice. We really appreciate your help and assistance guys! And I still owe a couple of you a beer.

The guys with GM Vortec are always right there to see how things are going, and always there to lend a hand. These guys take great care of their teams. Whether we're stealing their truck, picking their brains, or dragging them over to our boat every time we hear the slightest hic-up. They're always there ready to help. I owe you guys quite a few beers. Thanks.

You guys are always there for us, and you certainly came to our rescue last week. Gary, I'm sure I'm up to a commercial cooler full on my tab with you. I can't begin to express how much I appreciate you letting me bug you every 15 minutes for a tool or part or gas or battery or... Well, Thanks for everything.

Richard and Bob,
Thanks for letting me have one more run in the old gal! Bob knows his stuff, and obviously loves what he does. He and Richard are both a lot of fun. In fact, these guys are a riot. They should have the old Solarized changed into the new Screamin Nuts in no time. I wish you guys the best of luck next year.

The Mutual Fun Factory 1 race team,
These guys didn't know us from crap, yet they gave us a hand and let us work under their tent for two days. In fact, these guys showed me a couple of "tricks of the trade" in outdrive installation. Thanks guys.

H2O Cowgirl, (Julie),
We had this girl doing everything from driving the truck, running props, running parts, helping remove drives, helping re-install drives, she had greasy hands right there along with the rest of us. This woman worked, starved, and ran all week long and never complained a bit.
Thanks sweetie.

We had a great time in the Keys and hated to come home. Thanks again to everyone that came to help.
