I thought GL was our king.
From the man himself.

Myself?

I'd rather be running than first. If you can have both, great.

After seeing GL's rig and 650 heading back to Burlington Sunday, I'd have to say he's at least King of The Road That sucker's HUGE!

I haven't even had a chance to clean my plugs

Ran for about an hour mixing up the revs to break in our new engines (one new one each !) maxed out at about 125 coming back South from the Cumberland Ferries, then did a couple one mile take off runs in Malletts Bay preparing for the speed runs we will do in Quebec weekend of Sept 12th.... Maxed out at 116 mph after one mile still gaining speed so once we empty the 220 gallons currently of 93 OCT in the tanks, throw in 100 or so gallons of 110 OCT and crank up the boost on the mills we should be close to 125-130 which should be enough.

Here's a picture to add color to the boring text!
Sorry man. I didn't see ya. I heard twins, looked up and saw the yellow Nortech. I was pre-occupied giving a sea trial to the buyers of my SeaRay. They loved it.

We are picking up a Silverton 31C this weekend on the lower Hudson. We'll spend the next 3 or 4 weeks bumming around the Hudson River and NYS Canal System.


See ya on the water,
Frank
