No problemo Mr. Dynomometer

Well, my boat is just about done. Stellings extension boxes are bolted to the transom. New gimble bearings will be here on Monday. Engine mounts have been fitted, cut and installed. Engine hatch lift, new bilge pumps, oil coolers and some wiring need to be completed yet then engines will be ready to install. Engines are being moved 10 inches back---definately more engine pit room! Also, better center of gravity/angle of attack so I've been told----we'll see.

Sweet Mark!! Let us know when you are gonna do your shakedown run. Love to help out/play chase boat if possible.

Dyno, I feel for you man. Been there (recently), done that (also, recently!!!), stole the t-shirt (and got it really dirty )

Dyno, I was going to stop over but forgot. Are you going to be there tomorrow night? Have a lot of work to do lately. There's ALWAYS going to be bugs to kill.
So, did you hurt anything besides having the "washed out" bearings? Do you need to "turn" the crank? Hope you saved it in time bud.
