Miami is a buying show for marine prodcuts isn't it? Whether reatil or wholesale you go there to shop. I've never thought of boat shows as "concept" shows where manufacturers show what's new in 3-5 years from now it's what you can buy today? So, I think having nothing more than a concept today would not go over well there???

I know Gale. I think I'll just call him and ask when he is going to put that engine in a 26-29 foot performance boat and thrash on it for a while. Maybe I can find out what the reason is for the continued pitch on this engine is and why it has apparently never splashed?
He's got the money and staff, maybe he just needs some encouragement! I'll let you know what he says. I'd love to see it succeed.

Best Regards,
Ray @ Raylar
