All Fired Up

I am so excited and proud of Mr P, as a lot of you know over the winter he took the engines and drives out and made lots of changes (different drive set up, new props, hopefuly more speed) We had parts strewn everywhere, a few weeks ago he put the engines back in, something he has never done. Well tonight we had a date with the hose and both engines fired up the first time and sounded better than ever Tomorrow we are heading to Lake St Clair to get her wet, keep your fingers crossed it runs as well as it did in the driveway. I must say I was little bit nervous, but even though he is not a mechanic by trade it looks like he did a great job and saved us a lot of money Thanks honey, glad I am you first mate

I tell you, for not being a mechanic by trade, he seems to be quite knowledgable. I get the feeling he really enjoys working on the engines as much as he does running the boat.

Good luck on the maiden voyage with the new power.
