Default Severe Active Thunder Storm Moving North

ATTN: THUNDERDAN,

I flew in from Vegas just to finalize your boat, and make sure it got on the road today!!!!!

YOUR BOAT HAS LEFT THE BUILDING.......WHEW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is absolutely one gorgeous boat! It is one of a kind! I have been hearing a lot of noise and comments about this boat, but to see it in person is something really special.

I will say this, that with all those ammenities in that boat, i can't believe it runs 102 MPH, in fresh water , on a 90+ degree day, with over 90% humidity..........THAT'S FAST!!

ENJOY........be safe!

Too Old, You are absoloutly right, I am sure glad Dan's boat is gone so we can finish mine Dan's boat turned out awesome, We are very excited in getting ours, especially with the Imco drives, this will be a good test to see the effeciency of which drive is better suited for that bottom. Motors, hp, and equipment of the boats are the same except I will be about 300 pounds heavier.

I've personally seen this boat progress from beginning to end; watched them fit that lightning bolt carpet in the cabin with Dan one day. It truly is a work of "fiberglass art", and if any of you get a chance to see it for yourselves, you'll agree!

Congrats Dan, I know it was a long journey, but well worth it in the end! Have a fun and safe Holiday!

Thank you all for enduring my posts with thousands of questions and it will be a sleepless night. I will post several pictures on the madien voyage weekend for everyone to see.

Robbie we have to hook up in Florida this fall for a poker run or two. I would love to met you and your wife.

Too old, I think the boat left Pompano around 4:00 or so. I know you are real close to 95.

Jeff added a generator on his boat so that is most of the weight that he is over mine. With the bottom 300 pounds is not going to effect it at all.

Jafo,

we will met again at the Thunderrun in October.

Come on tomorrow....

I forgot to mention that as the boat was getting shrink wrapped to get shipped, there was the most wicked thunderstorm that rolled through pompano. Hail, wicked rain and wind. It was the blessing from above to ship the thunderstorm out.

Hey TOO OLD, the generator added only a few pounds, most of the extra weight is in the additional layup, of resin and cloth. Other than that, the weight and extra goodies are the same, oh yeah, I forgot about the 5 bottles of CROWN SELECT that Pat will be stocking in my fridge for losing the bet so add another 10 pounds
