Hey Sean, the Kryptonite is home and looks pretty cool. The hood scoops came out great and the 1/4 canopy windshields look awesome! I'll post some pictures in the next few days if it stops raining long enough to snap a few. I know that Bill is proud of the boat and Kirk should be too!
On another good note, the Gladiator is back to 100% again. The engine problem that we had during the race in Marathon was tracked down this week and found to be only a bad battery. Because of the dead battery, the electrical system was not getting enough juice for the injectors and the distributor to fire properly. Go figure. We replaced that battery and that engine now runs like a clock again! We ran tests on the rest of the electrical system and everything else is OK. We learned the hard way to double check the battery switches before leaving the boat for the night!
As far as the Apache and Hawk Power, I will say this again. At this time I have had no problems with them. I can tell you that I will be certain to have enough paperwork to cover my a** if the engines are not right when they are finished. Again, this is not a precaution I am taking because it is Hawk Power, it is a precaution that I would take with anybody. The test will be to see how the engines come out. I will be sure to post results here on OSO whether they are good or bad.
