It's not that I can't find an assembler......I don't want one. I don't trust anyone, including myself. That is why I double and triple check myself. As long as the engines going out the door have my name on them, then I will be the only one putting them together. I won't get behind because I just stop taking the work in. I will go until I drop, but I will not take more than I know that I can handle. I don't have an issue with working 18+ hours a day. I enjoy it.
It is almost 1 am and I am still at it. I went until 3:45 am last night. I will be at it again all weekend. This is my busy time and I will take advantage of it as much as I can. When it's time to play.....then I play hard. Right now, it's time to work. Thanks
Eddie

Thanks buddy. I couldn't be happier. Not to mention that I could really use the extra room.

Same with my 950's with 244 hours on them. Eddie is the man. Hey Donzi you still at Center Hill? If you are come by.

Chris said he dropped the motor this weekend at your "small shop" out back of your home... 6 bays! Wow. Now I wanna see pics of your setup just as much as the motor! Btw my name is Josh Emmick.

I'm trying brother. I'm going as fast as I can. I am cleaning everything for the short block now to start assembling. I wanted to have it done last week, but the bearings were giving me some problems. I needed to order some .001 undersized main and rod bearings so that I can get the clearances where I want them. Should hopefully have both shortblocks done this week. Talk to you soon.

Yes, I am still around. I am winding up my busy season.

Bought a 60ft Chris Craft Roamer with 1271TI's to run around the Tn lake system. 3 staterooms and 3 heads, walk-in engine rooms and all the goodies. It is a piece of artwork. I never imagined that I would think that performance boating was cheap but you can spend some money on those big boys. Think 4 gal a mile when you lean on it. I am keeping the Donzi at Center Hill close to the house.

I have a friend here building me a custom hydraulic ram system so I can raise an lower the mast. I was explaining it to some of my big boat friends. They looked with bewilderment and asked how I knew someone that could do that.

We need to get together for a day on the lake again. I enjoyed last time. Next time I want to play more.
