I can't talk about it right now, it's being handled by the Postal Inspector. Those guys don't mess around!

Ditto, except 2 hours one trip and maybe an hour on the other.

50+ hours on the new Outlaw.
20+ on my jetboat.
15-20 on the jetski....

But we're living on the water now so it feels like boating just stepping out onto the back porch. Still not used to it!

Seven hours on the boat since March. Disgusting, isn't it! Summer was too short and too hot, now we don't have any water in the local lakes!

Well we're out for the season. Plenty of time left but we're on the trailer for the rest of the season. Not enough daylight left to get anything done after work and it's getting colder every night. So we pulled the boats out on Sunday.

you really want to hear this story?

Started season with one good bullet engine and one that exploded. Sold the one good and purchased 2 take out 496HO's that never got delivered, Chased for 7 weeks to get my funds back. Then purchased two long block 502's and got impatient with the seller because it had been 3 weeks and he has still not crated, got him to credit funds back.Then purchased two "running" 440 hp's and two core 502's to dress them. The "running" 440 hp's from FL did not run, carbs were frozen and one engine was locked up. Had one engine rebuilt only to find out they missed a small hole in the head which caused it to be set up in the first place. Nearly $3000 additional funs just to make these motors right. Just finished installing new heads on the motor with the problems. Now I need to pull the motor this week and install a new starter and ring gear, re-manned starter took out the ring gear when it failed.

I just took my 2005 F350 harely edition to the dealer for a new turnbo and EGR cooler, it crapped out this week.

I DO NOT KNOW WHAT I DID TO DERSERVE THIS KARMA!!! Maybe I sleep walk and hunt puppies and kittens?

I am in upstate NY, but I have plans to keep it in the water until the first frost!
