Default Thanks to a fellow OSO member

This morning after driving through the night to get Canada Thrust to Pompano beach without getting stopped by the keys police force for driving at night without an oversize permit, I made it all the way to cardsound bridge and dropped a bearing on a two month old myco. While the service truck took off the old wheel I called OSO member BUIZILLA who I knew back in high school. He made phone calls and arranged for me to take the boat to a marine shop in Homestead for new bearings. The repair shop Dalton Marine supply replaced all bearing and seals in the one wheel and with labor and parts only charged me $198.50. When this happens I usually pay 3 to 4 hundred for the same serivce. Dalton was very honest and I recommend them to anyone that has a problem in the homstead area. As my luck progressed I headed north on 826 in Miami and with murphy's law on my side dropped the bearings on the other side of the same axel. this time I just took off the bad wheel and proceeded to Turbine Marine on 5 tires. Again I want to thank Jim aka Buizilla and to Dalton Marine Supply for saving my behind.

You too, How is dan hangin? I don't think he knew he was in the keys. Good to see all the scope members that came 3000 miles for a poker run. Now lets see some of the east coasters come to the scope run next year. Oh I forgot they can't boat in real ocean water

Real ocean water scares most!

Dan was in awe the whole trip. He's still smiling
