Gary was great to deal with and the boat has just been fantastic both in the ocean and at the river, we went a little over 200 miles yesterday and towed the other boat about 10 miles and it just ran perfect.

Yes it's your old boat and i think that this is the third? motor to let go, right? they were cruising along and made it about 30 miles when something let go. sounded like they may have dropped a valve, whatever it was it didn't sound good, so i towed him 10 miles back to cottonwood.

I just got off the phone with Don, I'm going to call Phil Jr in Prescott tomorrow and see if we cant get him up and going soon as possible. It sure is discouraging to have gone through as many of those HO's as I have and to have 2 more coming on my new boat. What the hell is wrong with the top end of these things???

Have they been fixing the same motor or have they been different motors each time?
I haven't heard of anyone else having that kind of problem.

1st motor replacement was a long block that Marine Max tried to pass off as new
2nd was a new on the pallet that Ben and Phil Jr brokered along with attorneys from Merc.

Btw , thanks for towing them in, that was mighty big of you. like to buy you a beer.

Not a problem and he took care of the beer ( a lot of them ) last night, hopefully he will send me the pics from last night, Maybe we will see each other on a show sometime. We do video projection/LED screens, We are doing the screens for Eminen and 50cent but we also do conventions and film and tv shows like 24/West Wing/ Wheel of fortune etc.

Always good to know someone else that feels the pain I do, i was locked up in the ballroom of the Phoenician resort for 14 hrs today with a bunch of corporate tools. Made a couple grand but I would have gladly given it up to go party with my friends at Humbug cove or on the dam run. My time is coming...... im out. Ill see ya'll tomorrow.
