Default Thanks to Edit Marine and Active Thunder

I took my Activator with twin outboards to Miami 2 weeks ago but had a bad starboard engine which kept cutting out. Had taken it to 3 different shops over the past 2 months and didn't have much luck. I called Ed at Edit Marine on Friday morning, November 7th. As a stroke of luck, he returned my call in minutes and guaranteed he would have me running by the end of the day and on my way to watch the Key West races for the weekend.

He spent several hours with me that day and trouble shot the problem, and even took it out on a test run with me. Well, later that evening as 7pm rolled around, he finished up while Pat from Active Thunder stood by in support. Sure enough my girlfriend and I arrived later that night in Key West with the boat and had a great weekend out on the water.

These guys didn't know me from a hole in the wall but still took the time to get a guy out on the water when they could have been home with their families.

All I can say is "wow". I am lucky to have come across such professionals, guys who do what they do with passion. Here I am in the Active Thunder shop with an Activator with outboards. I think that says a lot, because they had plenty to do without me coming along to disturb their work.

Hats off to Pat and Ed. Just when I started to lose faith in this sport and the people behind it, you have restored my excitement. These guys are a wealth of knowledge and experience, and more importantly, passionate and decent fellows.

Thanks Again.

Rtaylor- That is a nice looking Activator OB? Are the engines 280s? What speed and props are you running?

Thx-

Thanks fellas. The engines are actually 1998 200 pro maxes. The props are 26" 4 bladers and she does 73.8 on gps. Needs a little tweaking.

One day I'll move up to a bigger boat, but for now she's about all I can handle. Thanks for the compliments.

Randy
