Hey, I resemble that statement!!!
C'mon though - Dinner was good.

I'm working on a ride for myself, still counting my pennies.

We will be there this summer - look forward to meeting up with you again.

Rat, - yeah, that was a helluva ride out of the cut. Jody can handle the rough stuff, the first time she really met me we made a similar run, but my old Baja didn't have what it takes to get the air we did on that run with you. And that Mistress of yours can and did handle it.
I had a great time.
Thanks again.

f311/Joe,
I just realized I was supposed to give you a call. Been hectic getting back and with the holiday.

I know what you mean about the "pain to play", Jody and I were both sore the next day, but isn't that part of the fun??

I hope all is well with you and Sue, I imagine these past two weeks have been hectic for her.
If you guy's need anything, my extension is 2053 - back at the office Mon.

here ya go team baha, pics. its really an awsome boat, its a 1979 and ive been all thru it re-rigging it and there isnt a bit of rot anywhere, no stress cracks and i run the crap out of it in big water all the time there are zero stress cracks in it. for a 26 year old boat thats awsome. it came originally with 650 hawk blower motors and bw 72c's and ssm#3 drives. i have 700hp 577 n/as in it now but since she's been such a good girl, she's getting 1000hp 588ci blower motors for xmas
