Nice project. I own Young Electrical Construction I was wondering if you had t shirts you would like to swap. I'm also looking for a builder for my motor this winter.

Thanks ,Kevin Young

Just an update. I ran the boat yesterday to do some final tuning and to just go ring it out to see what it will do. I ran out of balls at 94.8 gps. I came up on some rollers and backed out of it as it was getting out of shape. It got out of shape a couple times before and got real bad. The last thing I wanted to do was go swimming or trash the boat, so I stayed on the side of caution. The boat was actually running and handling excellent until I hit the rollers from a cruiser. I was pleasantly surprised by how well the boat handled at almost 95. It was still pulling pretty good when I lifted. I really think it will hit 100 in the right conditions. The water just got worse, since there was a fishing tournament starting and about 50 bass boats starting buzzing up and down the lake. I gave up at that point trying to run top speed. Anyway, just wanted to give you guys a speed update. Enjoy, Eddie

Default NICE job Eddie,

I must say I was very impressed with the new setup Bill.
I did not see the boat before, but (i hope you dont mind) I climbed in at Eddies and was very impressed with the new setup. Very classy looking, not busy and will never date the boat, nice selection.
I look forward to being passed on Center hill this summer.
As soon as I get back from my trip next week, I have 2 weeks off. Maybe we'll see you on the lake.
Beautiful boat and a nice job. Congrats.
95 mph aint shabby at all. She's a runner.

Keep Eddie comin out our way, I figure soon enough he'll figure out what we have goin on out here in the stix.

Nice job both you guys, keep the faith.....Michael

Thanks Micheal. It is a runner and is even faster than I hoped. I put a bunch of thought into it. Through Eddies guidance and hard work I think it is a well turned out ZX. Keep quiet about the stix. It is nice to be able to run hard without hassel.

I saw your boat a number of weeks ago covered in Smithville. I would really like to see it in person. It looked very well turned out.

I will give you a shout and we can go splash the boats in CH when you get back.

Hey Bill, that ZX sure looks familiar....
All I can say is WOW!!!
The Dash is over the top, I wish I would've went with something like that.... very nice.
It looks like you,re not too far away from the numbers you wanted. Do you have any vid's of it running?
Give me a call sometime, I'd love to get all the details of the upgrades....Again, congrats, & it looks awsome!!!
