Dave

I am very pleased with the Dart tall decks that Callies Crank shop built. I am exceptionally pleased with the Skater built by Douglas Marine. The Arnesons and Arneson as a company builds in my opinion the best high performance drive for a high performance application today provided the hull is designed properly. I am also very pleased with the Bam marine transmissions. You can guess why I do not sit here and discuss what top speeds this boat runs. The motors can spin 6200 no problem slightly down sizing props. Currently the boat spins 16.5 x 34s 5 blades.

My boating season ended with about $7000 in fuel this summer. The last run was down to ac last weekend and we will run around the bay this weekend. I would rig another boat with out hesitation. I called and talked to a few guys about going to mechanical rollers and they told me the motor packages are so reliable and run so strong it would be a waste of time.

So do you think I should pull the motors? They have about 100 hrs. with 190lbs of compression across the board. Also the passenger side was never rigged because it is a pleasure boat and I was uncertain whether or not to do a dual helm. The passenger side will be rigged now. I both with GPS speedos and GPS with dual tachs.

This is another funny post by you. How many years do you think you can drag this out?

you were on oso for 2-3 years asking dumb questions and mooching rides off your buddies before you laid your money down on the table.. whats your point?? i can assure i wont wait 2-3 years before i wet your ass down...
