    Just about there!!!!!!!!

    After some long days and nights one motor is finally back in the boat. The second motor is going back in today. After having to replace everything that I thought I was going to reuse this thing is finally going to run. Hopefully it will be on the hose today. With any luck, maybe a water test tomorrow.

    What is the Hammond group up to?? Would like to be around Friends for the first run

    Russ just called me and all I heard was some load motors. They are both running. He promised to take it easy and save the boat for the Chicago Poker Run.

    Re: Just about there!!!!!!!!

    Both motors fired last night without issue sans one small drip from the port crossover Idled great at just under 1000 with 65lbs oil. Still have some tweaking yet and a ton of cleaning but I guess that never ends anyway. I can't tell you how much better I feel after getting this project back together.

    I need to give the most sincere thanks to Frank Holas (our own 10X) for being on the other end of the phone every time I needed him!!!! Frank you are the man, couldn't have done it without you.
