sorry you had trouble with your engine. been there before.. If I could afford to run 400 gallons(what the boat holds) of race gas plus a methanol tank i would not be running a Hallett with a little 540.

When your in Vegas look me up when you get into town. I'll meet you at AVN if you have a ticket for me

Good luck with your New engines. I hope you get a lot of trouble free hours out of them..

Were these the Skaters that you have been discussing, Predator and so forth??? Again, we saw them launch at Bergers Marina and talked with them for quite a while during a nice little rain we got that morning. Hope to see them back this summer at the Shootout.
Lance and I were there in 2005 and it starting pourring right after we launched the boats. We stood under the dock covering for a while. Don't remember the name of the marina.

Lance had a belt issue but we got to run the Shootout.

Hey Chad how are you? Hope all is good. Glad to hear you took care of Gary, sick new Skater, huh..

I ran at LOTO shortly after my boat was done. We didn't have it dialed or good props but we ran 148. A classic 36' Skater beat us "Hollow Point" was it's name. Good running Skater, can't remember what he ran but.. oh well. I know he never hit 175... lol

Hollow Point, Father and Son, Jeff and Daniel. Both great guys, I've done a great deal of business with them both.
