Byrdie,

I just wanna thank you for letting me be part of this project and letting me document this. But, holy crap, you took me for a ride of a lifetime. And for that I could never thank you enough. Does going 190mph in your boat make me the fastest woman on the water?

Tommorows agenda is fine tuning air/fuel mixture ratios and syncing RPMs with drive adjustments.We are still not running the most aggressive tune up in the boat.We are confident that we can achieve higher speeds with this tune up in the next pass.We will see what will happen.

That's barely 100MPH faster than my fastest current boat.

Congrats and stay safe. Very impressive!! With Skater being just down the road, I always root for Peter's boats.

I just helped fine tune his combination along with Richie Zul and steered him to the best boat rigger, John Pompi (Callan turbine race boat), to complete this project, and he has seen it through to the very end. This project was a success. We are still in the testing and tuning stages of this boat, we have Johnny Tomlinson coming tommorrow to fine tune the final stages of this project.
Very Nice Project!
Beautiful boat...CONGRATS to all involved you should be proud of your accomplishment
