Wish you would have known. You could have told the guy not to waste money on the ring and would have had a 100 mph boat - money would have been spent better on an even bigger motor.

LOL - Kidding but I had to say it since it was the first thing to run thru my head.

Not a problem, we stayed late one night and got her done. Saturday the customer goes out for the day and puts some time on it. Around 5pm we see the boat come back to the docks, both the customer and his girlfriend have huge grins, not only did the boat run great,but she said yes!! That right there made staying late one night 200% worth it! Congrats to the happy couple and their Pantera!
You helped this guy ruin his life! Nothing to be proud of.

Just kidding. Way to help a customer out, you don't hear that often in this industry. 90s in a 28 isn't an easy feat. I'm guessing about 900hp?

That is what it's all about. Making someone's day.
