Chris,
PM with the number. Turned out to be a great day! Cleaned the Chopper and cooked out. I'll be leaving for AZ on Thursday for a week. I'm ready!

I'm off next weekend too, so let me know if that looks better.

Don't know if I still have your number at the lake house, PM to me so I can get you on the weekends.

I was surprised to see the deck was full today! Have to enjoy it while we can. I was gonna take mine out but was to lazy to pull it out of the garage.

Did you and cherie (spelling?) find a new boat yet?

dumb question, but I thought there could be an engine problem if the water was to cold, or do you use a differnt grade of oil.

That was the pic I posted on the other site.

The water temp really does not matter. No different than a car or truck with a big block. Once the engine warms up the oil will get up to temp. The only slight concern would be if the engine does not get up to 140deg., it would not burn off the condensation from the oil. That can happen on summer day though.
