I can resize the pics in a jiffy, just send them to [email protected]

On another note, the Poker run might be out for me. I've been tracking something in the motor and it turns out I might have a real problem. I've got oil in the antifreeze tank and the general concencious is a bad head gasket. A buddy of mine is a seasoned auto mech and I'm going to take the boat over there in the morning and we're going to do some testing on it to see if it is a head gasket, but he says that he just doesn't have time to do the work. Any you guys over there hooked up with a mech? Trying not to get butt raped too much on the $ part of it, plus I know these guys are backed up this time of year. Thx and send those pics, I'll do them up tommorrow.

I "piloted" this boat to the Bahamas in 8' seas.
That was nuts.
It was good to meet you & Shawna.
Let's do it again.
Bruce
Back at Ya!! Hopefully I don't have too much of a problem, she did feel a little sluggish this weekend so the head gasket explaination is starting to make sense.

Let me know after you do the tests. I am in the car performance industry and I have a few guys you could call. I'm not sure if any of them would work on a boat though. The work should be the same whether it is a car or a boat, just not sure if they would take the job. If they did I'd recommend you shrink wrap all your vinyl.

Merc and GOODT (a hi perf marine mech) says it's just a plain old head gasket change, nothing special. I can pull a head off no problem, it's dealing with the pushrods going back on that scare me, it's been a while, but I would be there helping regardless and if they stay somewhat clean, I'll just have to remind them of the "leftover" cold beer in the cooler in the cabin
I can get a felpro set with the stainless center from Trick for a couple of bills. I really appreciate the offer...my cell is 407-325-5756

What do you do btw?

Unsane,
Sorry to hear about your motor blues! Baja Bennett has had good luck with Quality Marine, (321-449-0238) they are on Merritt Island, next to the M.I. airport. You could also call Bruce @ Express Marine Engines in Deland, ph. # 386-734-9302 and see if he can help you out. I noticed the your motor was not running right when we left the island in Sebsatian, it was missing just alittle. I'll send you those HUGE Pics tonight, I tried resizing them, but they get so small you can't see any detail.
Let us know what you find out today,
Dean

Most people hang out over at Ski Island by the lock. Give me a call when you are out and I'll see where we are. 298-1606 - local area code.
I don't know squat about fishing but got the boat and gear so I look the part.

My best fishing is done at Direct Seafood off Aurora Road in Melbourne.

Some good fishing company would b good thing--will catch up with you this weekend..

Ahhh,...... NO, but that's OK, we like having lots of friends! They help to keep the TIKI bar fridge full of Bud light, and the kids just play in the pool, fish off the dock, or go canoeing in sykes creek! I thought you are going to get Bryce this weekend?

Call ::

Perfect Timing Performance
Address: 631 Washburn Rd, Melbourne, FL 32934
Phone: (321) 255-1595

Tell them Matt from CoxImport sent you. They know my partner better than they know me. He has had his 2 cars in there for thousands of work over the past couple months. If you do take it there I am VERY serious about the shrinkwrap. They do great work but they have no concept of washing their hands or keeping super white vinyl clean.

I am a distributor of high performance auto parts. We supply shops nationwide and also do some retail. www.coximports.com
