Thumbs up Just ran the Skater today...FASTEST it has ever went!

Well all the hard work this spring paid of big! Ran the Skater today. With two full tanks of fuel, DEAD FLAT WATER (Skaters hate glassy water) and 5 guys in the boat we ran 96! With just two of us we pegged the Gaffrig Speedo at 100! I wish I had a GPS to see exactly how fast I was going! Boy it was sure nice having pyrometers!!! I hope you all had a good weekend. Racing the snowmobiles at Hunter mountain next weekend!

Shane I glad to here everything went well. I cant wait to go for a run in the up coming weeks. All went good today for me as well. I had a great day with Paul and got home from Typhoon in only 2 hours. The motor looks great. and all is okay with the crack in the fire wall and the bell housing issue.

Bob when the hell are we going to get together??? I might get up there during the week to work on the house. when will you be home???? E mail me [email protected]

Bob,

Why didn't you wave me down? Where were you? At your house? Sorry I didn't see you. Would love to have you run with me in the boat sometime with the hand held. Thanks.

Paul,

Glad to hear all went well with all the issues. I'll talk to you later today.

Sharkey,

All set for Skaterfest my man! CANNOT WAIT!

Wild,

Thanks for the compliments.

Shane

You guys are too much! Thanks Dean! Mike, haven't even gotten the bew fuel fills yet, I figure another 8 to MPH EASY with those. The co-efficient of drag becomes exponential over 100 so the numbers should go up significantly!
