Thanks Jim, Can't wait. If they are ready by the boat show I would be thrilled! The boat is at MTI getting all the newest updates. Motors are just getting finished at Sterling. I would love to be able to start the season fresh with everything one shot. I think these are going to make a huge difference!! Thank you

It makes parking fun again and a lot less stressful! Looks like we will have them done by Miami. Do you want them sent to MTI or Miami?

He's been running those mills for a couple years now and all the local events that I've been too he's never had a failure that I have witnessed.

In fact, at the NYC Poker Run when he fired them up and I was impressed how quite the engine room was and how mellow the idle was!
