I'm glad I changed my underwear the week prior to going. It could have been ugly.

You weren't scared, you were just staying out of the 3 gallons of water that was blasting over the bow every 15 seconds.

Yeah RIGHT.....

Glad to hear that!! while you were burning oil last weekend I was throwing chunks of motor out the side of the block and the oil pan. I should have some pictures shortly of a really tired 48 hour motor. Everything will be ready for Sarasota!!

Well I guess I'm doing alright with a set of stock motors with 192 hrs that have oil problems . Sorry to hear Jim. When's the Sarasota PR? We were just there July 4th and are going again Labor Day.

I have a 35 cig with 500EFIs and it is great to drive and I can appreciate the reliability. The skater motors are 1228 hp with 1030 torque from 5000 to 6000 RPM. Thats usually were they run with 6600 rev limitors. Failures are part of the game with this type of machine. I was glad to see 48 hours. The Sarasota run is October 7th and 8th. Hope to see you there.

Unfortunately not. You should come to Sarasota or Key West and see all the beautiful boats of all makes and models. Have you gone to a poker run in Florida yet?

I just talked to a Mike (hint... 36 Daytona) who says he has been trying to tell you that you have the wrong engine builder
