Dennis,

Just wanted to thank you for your offer to pack my drive for shipping to Max Machine last winter. I built a crate and arranged shipping with another OSO member's logistics company.

I wasn't running hard in the LEOPA Fall Poker Run due to an oil temp problem in one motor so I was getting caught up in the slop. As you were approaching, I did get caught in a bad cross wake ... took it at the wrong angle and speed that laid me over on the starboard side. I did see you coming up from behind on my starboard side and honestly did this trying to stay out of your way. I definately did not want to cut in front of you!

Pure Adrenalin's new top end is 130 mph.

My real point is every V, not just you alone, was having problems with the slop in Livingston Channel. We were just cruising enjoying the ride.

Try going to the custom XR's with the Imco lowers, Imco innards and modified caps. I have those on the CIg. Have not blown one yet.

The firt pic is Popeye's. The second and third are the new Reliable. I was on one of the pace boats for the OSS race in St. Clair, MI in July when they went over. Fortunately no injuries. There were a couple threads from July where more pics were posted.

No malicious intent posting these ... just messin' with the cat guys!

There is nothing wrong with your boat. The classes, makes and styles of cats are just like the V's. There are a lot of V's you would not have for love or money. Cats are the same. Hitch a ride with Greg sometime.

I guarantee you when that boat smacked the water Johnny had those throttles pumping forward.
