Yes, this is the one.

Jc,
I can't find your #. Send it to me or call me at 615-216-7449

Everyone else, Thank you so very much. This has been a very big project and it is such a good feeling when it comes together. I'm certainly not done, but the first run is a huge step. As I said earlier, it will be warm all week so I will definitely get in a few runs, with some video.

Rick T, I will know more this week how the props are. I'm not sure if the 39's are gonna get it or not. If I have a need for the 40's, I will let you know. Thanks, Eddie.

Erics Hustler only has 970 hp, whereas these are 1200+ hp. His Hustler accelerates harder from 50-100 mph than any other boat I have been in. The Skater pulls really hard and I never really got into that hard. Eric's boat starts to get out of shape around 100, even though it has plenty motor left. The Skater will just keep going. I'm going to check the Skater for acceleration the next time out. I need to be sure the acceleration enrichment is right(like an accelerator pump on a carb), so I will step on it pretty hard. I'll let you know how it does.

When I ran that boat setting it up for Peter at Skater before it went to the Powerboat test in Sarasota with 1075 in it with 38 pitch props 70 to 120mph in under 7 seconds and it has bigger motors now !
