Default The Facts

Smitty,

Thank you for our telephone conversation today, July 22, regarding your issues with OSS. I am glad that after presenting the facts to you regarding the certification history of the subject Mercury 525 engines that we both understand how you are caught in a bad situation. As this forum is your regular communication media I would ask you to enlighten your readers to the facts around this issue, just as we discussed, that do not cast doubt on Fountain Powerboats. I hope to see you at our race on August 6th. You and Anthony have done a great job and we thank you for racing our boat.

I see the piranha feeding frenzy has taken a break. David Knight appears to have given an explanation that led Smitty to delete the thread that many of you posted recklessly in.

As always, there are two sides to every story. I don't feel that we are in a position to demand answers from anyone. If Smitty wants to shed some light on the additional facts, that's fine.

Well,
Here again I forced myself to read the Rule Book of SBI.

Interesting stuff:

1.13.5

No Modifications or Changes of any type be made to an engine or any components there on... (you can read the rest on the SBI site) etc. UNLESS PERFORMED BY AN SBIP/APBA OFFSHORE APPROVED SOURCE OR APPROVED IN WRITING BY SBIP/APBA


It appears mods are allowed as long as it is done by an approved source ?
Am I reading that right?
