Hi Jim. What's the top speed going to be on your Fountain this year?

I know his GPS speedo said 101 mph at the Shootout but the radar gun said 98 (he should have turned towards it at the end of the run eh??). I've seen Jim run that boat for years, and it's seriously fast when he's not blowing up Bravo's.

The guy I work with at HMI lives in Jenison and would maybe take a look at it. You want I should ask him? He's got lots of used parts and programs and could maybe fix it really cheap.

Hey T. Same old chit

Crazy, yeah, if he want's to look at the dead one, I'd be willing to let him. If it's shot, he can have it. Lemme know.
