I may call you about the parts. Thanks again.

Is that story true?!? That is f-ing hilarious if it is. And Steve (throttleman) lied, because he told me I still had it when he left the bar.

I guess I am due next on the breakage list .

Damage report

Our Buddy's from Jackson. One in a 26 AO got tail ended buy another boat racing in the turns.

One scarab had a bad starter and the other scarab was a fuel pump..Sounds like a lot of people had some bad luck .I know I hurt my liver for 3 days straight

Next trip Memorial Day on the coast and then Royal Purple then coast again for the 4th of July

Now Eric I remember you telling me the first day you got the boat your were jumping waves

I too am looking for a spare drive

You do not know how it was used before you bought it.

Sorry about the bad luck. That drive looks EXACTLY like mine from a year ago.

It was a top cap failure.

But some Billet top caps on and you will have better luck.

I grenaded a drive while looking for somewhere for my friend Matt Smith (in David Woods's boat, Royal Flush) find a ramp to get his boat out while on the way to the 3:30 Chicken Drop place. I should not have been trying to keep up with Matt (Royal Flush is a 42 Lightning with big power and wet sump #6's) doing 75-80 on that 2-foot chop (I have a 35 Lightning with stock 500HP's and Bravos). This was my first Poker Run with this boat and now I'm looking at 2K for the starboard drive and hoping it will be running by Memorial Day.

It was fun till she broke, though!

Guys... Y'all aren't going to believe this sh!t. All I broke was seals and one bearing. The bearing is what seized up... seal let the water in to cause it. Everything else is fine. We almost checked that the Wednesday before, too. New boat -- too much to check and trying to get it to the run too soon. Oh well, how many other people that broke would have spent more on the gas for the run than the repair? I am pretty happy. See you guys for Royal Purple, if not sooner.

P.S. I love the fact that the guy that stole my phone said I was still at the bar drinking with my throttleman. Next time I see that wino, I'm taking him for a boat ride. I bet he comes back a white guy.
