Brian, you going to be in Key West? I'd like to hook up and spend a little more time than last year where I was hung over and could barely think while trying to interview Sobo

Really is more than a shame what happened to that beautiful boat.

4bus you did give him a promo for his talented engine building "business" because I did Google "MotorsbyShooter" and watched his very entertaining video on how to adjust valves. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xMYYR1GDqUg

Not sure yet. All depends on work travel. Tokyo this month. Germany next month. We'll see about November, but I hope to be riding with Sommerfliesby on his newly delivered 37AT.

Not much of a promo when all the write-up is of a certain OSO ***sucker as you put it, and lending out all the "good tools .......so that's why I ain't got ****".......

Nice business sence

Wow, I could only make it to about 70 seconds.

Anyone remember Polesmoler making the statement "if you use any of the big name engine builders you are just over paying for the name" I wouldn't let this guy touch my lawn mower

This guy is something else, it's one thing to do it as a hobby, but he is a so called business, and jumps through hoops to talk crap about every other engine builder on the planet, even the big names
