Default Hi Jesse

OleRed here, and Yes, I had taken the boat off the market after talking you you and Al, but then Drew called, he and Kurt have the means to put it back up to speed, Kurt owned the boat before it went to Kentucky, he said he wished he had never sold the boat, so I let them have it, I figured I would just keep the Scarab, maybe get it powered next summer.

Bob came and picked it up for them, he had a picture of it when it was racing also ... kinda cool, anyway, I'm pleased, and so is Drew.

Take Care

Red, it was nice meeting you. That was one hell of a long drive! I'd do it again for a friend if I had too. Best of luck with the Scarab.
Bob

It would/will be very cool to see the boat come back to its "glory days" state. I still have a few pics somewhere. I was a couple years behind Joe in school and my father, Pete from K&L Auto Body, did some work occassionally on the boat for your father. Your dad also offered me some advice right before my first race in PP. I placed 3rd that day!

I believe I saw you in the Panther near the Captains Inn toward the end of the summer?

Regards, Mark Kelly

That was probably me in the boat. I put about 50 hours on the boat this year. Im sure you saw me atleast once. I was over there a couple times our house is the inlet down. Im sure you will see us next summer as well. The boat will be a little bit louder this year. If any one is interested in the boat it is for sale. If you want info just let me know.

Thanks jesse

and i agree it would be awesome to see the boat back to life. My father is amazed that everyone wants "his" boat so he cant wait to see what someone does with it. We will be by soon to see it.
