I saw the pictures of your new boat, it looks great! I am sure you are very happy with it and will have alot of fun with yours this summer. We may be heading to Door County this summer for a long weekend. Maybe we can get you to cross over and we can hook up.

Dean

Yep. Ordered it up overnight from BAM today. Hopefully it will be here tomorrow. I have to check on the order status site later.

Still up in the air for Memorial Day. We are just going to play it by ear for the time being. Maybe cruise down the creek to see you and Dail?

Friday night we are going gambling though (SunCruz). I have reservations for 8 and only 5 coming so let me know if you wanna come.

I was going to ask .. are you a poker player? Angela is a fiend and looking to put together a friendly Sunday-night game.

Later.

K,
Sounds like me, just hanging, going with the flow, and what the Dr. tells HQ what she is allowed to do! i know boating won't be one of them, BUT I think I can get a kitchen pass for 1 day.
The poker thing is not my bag, my money talks and is constantly saying "GOOD-BYE" as it is.... Thanks anyway.
I'll check in tomorrow about flush muff.
Dean


rv,
Didn't mean to hi-jack your thread on your AWESOME NT!

Yeah .. maybe we should quit using OSO as our personal "ladies room" PM me your e-mail address.

I doubt we'll make it to WPB (too far, too much gas, too little time, not enough to do). So we'll be around the area causing trouble. Would love to have you for a day. Dail going to be in town?

Cool on the poker, I'd feel bad taking all your money anyway I don't like it as much as Angela but I did whoop her ass as well as about 175 others and won the Sunday tourney at Club 52 a couple weeks ago. The $1200 purse has been my gas money so far.

</end thread hijack>

I wish I had a 43' Nor Tech ...

Rick,

I was wondering what you were doing all winter long. I knew it was only time before you got your hands on that boat. Great jo and looking forward to seeing that beast this year.

I bet it is at least 1-2 seconds faster. Also the rooster tail is about 4-5' higher than before at the same drive setting. Something changed!

Did you place an order yet for yours? What are your thoughts now for a engines/drives?

Thanks Mark.

Dean, yes we did have a 35 Nordic, friends of ours in Utah have it now. I guess I like that "Nor" part of the word. Yep, it has a pad.

Rick
Maybe the COG changed slightly. In that running shot were you trimmed to about 3 or 4. Jeff
