Thumbs up Looks Like i am Ready to Splash the Skater!

Well, I finished the last of the work last night. I want to take a moment to say thank you to Hot Boat for all of his help this spring on the boat. I also want to thank my wife for spending a few hours out in the garage helping me as well. All I have left is to fire it up and then change the plugs. But they are outboards so its easy work! Can't wait to use it. It's gonna be cold again though! They are talkin' SNOW here on Friday! Man I wanted the white gold for 6 months but now it's SPRING!

Well it's good to hear that YOU are ready. i just pulled my boat out of winter storage. Now I need to get an appointment with Jason. Could be a small snag as he doesn't have Saturday hours yet. I will let you know what we work out. Maybe I'll get a ride in the Skater when I drop off my boat [hint, hint].

Thanks Mike,

Can't this weekend, haulin' Hot Boats ride to New Jersey for him. LOOONNNGGGGG ride down and back in one day. Remember he was driving in teh snow storm with cruise control on and the road moved in front of him and then the guard rail pinstriped his truck? So while the paint dries we have to use my truck. No problem, he helps me out all the time. That's what friends are for right? Remember, if you ever make it north the offer goes for you to up here!

Shane

I take it that you got the bezels on. All you need now is for me to finish the Skater logo in the hatch. don't worry I will have it done tomorrow night. What time will you be here on Friday????

Stop your *****in, put on your snow mobile suit, your helmet and your gloves and go run that thing!!!!! Just think about how much more power you will have when you run in the cold. It could be worth a extra 5-10mph!!!

Bodyshot,
I will definitely be at Skaterfest. See ya there.

Audiofn,
I was actually talkin to a buddy of mine about that today, but then they run lean, and well you know the the rest of the story. 40 degrees farenheit and motors desiugned to run at 80 usually doesn't bode well longevity.
